Understanding and Reporting Hate Crime

This presentation is about understanding and reporting hate crime.

Throughout this presentation, we will cover what constitutes a hate crime or hate incident (and the difference between the two), the legislation we have in NSW concerning hate speech and Nazi symbols, new Commonwealth legislation regarding Nazi symbols and violent extremist material, and how to report such incidents to the NSW Police Force, including the various options available for making a report.

Join us to gain valuable insights, learn how to take action, and become better equipped to help build a safer and more inclusive community.

Please note: This is offered as part of our FREE community talks program. Pre-booking is encouraged, but walk-ins are welcome on the day.
