Community and faith groups come together to stand against hate
Haringey Council held a community breakfast event on Thursday as part of our programme of activities to mark National Hate Crime Awareness Week.
The event brought together the council, the police, faith leaders and organisations including Tell MAMA, the Community Security Trust, Stand Up! Education Against Discrimination and Wise Thoughts to discuss how we can work together to tackle hate in our communities.
Watch our video to hear from Cllr Adam Jogee, Cabinet Member for Economic Development, Jobs and Community Cohesion, on why it's so important for everyone to stand up against hate wherever they encounter it in our community:

Hate crime is defined by the Crown Prosecution Service as any crime where the offender has demonstrated or been motivated by hostility based on race, religion, disability, sexual orientation, or transgender identity.
Hate crime has a devastating effect not just on the individuals targeted, but also on their families and communities.
Taking place from 8-15 October, National Hate Crime Awareness Week aims to raise awareness and promote the work that local authorities, key partners and communities are doing together to tackle local hate crime issues.
