Fwd: Facing Facts – hate crime a shared responsibility – open conference March 21 Budapest


Make Hate Crimes Visible at the Tom Lantos Institute, H-1016 Budapest, Bérc u.13-15, Hungary

The purpose of the ‘Hate Crime: A Shared Responsibility’ conference is to identify ways to support, coordinate and facilitate the efforts of transnational agencies, national governments and Civil Society Organisations in making hate crime more visible to society.

Facing Facts! began as a European project (JUST/2009-10/FRAC/AG/1075). We empower Civil Society Organisations to collect data on hate incidents and crimes through training, so that bias motivated incidents will no longer be denied and victims’ rights will be protected.
