Join the Rights and Justice Research Priority Area (RPA) for a debate on LGBT hate crime.

As part of International Women’s Day 2016, the University is delighted to welcome Susannah Fish, Deputy Chief Constable of Nottinghamshire Police, to speak about her career. Followed by a networking lunch.
12pm, Wednesday 2 March
What is the rate of hate crime in Nottingham, and in the UK in general? Why do people avoid reporting it, and what can people within and outside the LGBT community do to spread awareness but also prevent crime? Over the course of the evening, David Edgeley from Rainbow Heritage will discuss how barriers to coming out affect the rate of reporting hate crime, and Sam Hope (an activist on LGBT rights) will focus on their work in campaigning against hate crime in Nottingham.
