Hate Crime and Prejudice Scotland is a new coalition of organisations working to reduce, challenge, and eradicate hate crime and prejudice across Scotland. It aims to collect, interpret, and share knowledge and understanding of hate crime, and prejudice, to improve the national evidence base and build a cohesive picture of good practice in tackling it. As part of this, the coalition is conducting a mapping exercise, in which you are invited to participate. This exercise aims to ensure that all organisations and institutions conducting prejudice-reduction work are identified and represented. You can access the survey at https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/BJPT5PL your input and support are appreciated. Please share this with your own contacts and networks.
