I think I have experienced a hate crime
Hate crimes hurt individuals and communities, and reporting them allows the University of Law and the police to better understand and deal with what is happening.
Hate incidents and hate crime are acts of violence or hostility against a person or property that is motivated by hostility or prejudice towards a person due to a particular characteristic. This could be a disability, race or ethnicity, religion or belief, sexual orientation, transgender identity or an alternative sub-culture hate crime. A victim does not have to be a member of the group at which the hostility is targeted. In fact, anyone could be a victim of a hate crime.
Hate incidents and crimes include bullying, verbal or physical harassment and sexual harassment which are contrary to the Equality Act 2010 and the University’s Dignity at Work and Study Policy and Informal Procedure.
The Equality Advisory and Support Service (EASS) gives practical advice and information about the Equality Act 2010 and discrimination.
