The Welsh government have launched a brand new campaign to tackle all different types of hate crime in Wales. Let's stand up to hate crime together.
What is a hate crime?
A hate crime is any criminal behaviour which appears to be motivated by a hostility or prejudice, or includes words or behaviour that show hostility, based on a person’s perceived:
- sexual orientation
- transgender identity
A hate crime can include verbal abuse, intimidation, threats, harassment, assault and bullying, as well as damage to property. The perpetrator could be someone unknown to you, or they could be a friend.
Hate crime can take place both in person and online.
