Forum Helps to Report More Hate Crimes

Since the introduction of its monitoring forum, more cases of hate crimes are being reported, according to the Hate Crimes Working Group

The Hate Crimes Working Group says since the introduction of its monitoring forum, more cases of hate crimes are being reported.
 
The forum, which is a comprehensive way of gathering information about victims of hate-related crime, is of the view that such crimes target people on the basis of their gender, religion or culture and often include violence such as rape.
 
Yolanda Mitchell, says about 90 cases have been reported thus far, adding that, “It doesn’t seem like 90 cases is a lot, but considering that it comes from five sources at this point, there is a lot of potential for us to get more cases with this continued training and awareness raising."
