Young people launch video to combat hate crime in Hertfordshire
Young people working with YC Hertfordshire, part of Hertfordshire County Council, have launched a video to encourage the reporting of hate crime
The video was created by young people from the Who Not What group of LGBTQ young people, supported by YC Hertfordshire. It depicts a young person who is targeted because of their sexuality and, subsequently, is supported by a Hate Crime Officer to report the crime.
Daisy, a member of Who Not What said: “We made the hate crime film because it is an important issue and the actual process of reporting hate incidents is rarely addressed or talked about so it was great to be able to make something creative for an important issue.“
The video can be accessed here: www.youtube.com/watch?v=IQVYGX2UCo4
and there is opportunity to give your feedback after watching the film via survey monkey: www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/PPDLRXY
