Crimes committed against someone because of their age, disability, gender reassignment, marriage and civil partnership, pregnancy and maternity, race, religion or belief, sex or sexual orientation are hate crimes.

On Monday 28 June, community leaders will be joining local police and the council to hold an online event to challenge hate in Tower Hamlets.

This event will give people from Tower Hamlets the chance to hear about what is being done to tackle hate crime and share their experiences and concerns in a safe and open discussion. There will also be resources and strategies to counter hate crime in our community.
