Virtual Discussion: What Are We Going to Do About Hate Crime in Our Region?

Monday 7 December 2020, 1:00 pm – 2:00 pm GMT, online (UK)


In May 2021 West Yorkshire is getting a mayor, a role similar to Andy Burnham in Greater Manchester among others.

The new mayor will become police and crime commissioner for West Yorkshire.

What do you think the mayor should do more of, or do better, to tackle hate crime in our region?

What practices could other local leaders and organisers implement to reduce divisions?

How can we best share knowledge and experiences between people and organisations in West Yorkshire?

Please join Dr. Tiffany Holloman of Same Skies for a session gathering together people, experiences and knowledge, then looking for themes and common threads that emerge.

If you would like to make a two minute contribution we will try to include as many as we can for most of the hour.

The themes and knowledge gathered in this conversation will feed into AMP West Yorkshire.

AMP, as in amplify, is the citizen-led alternative manifesto process to develop new ideas, and highlight existing good ideas, for the first West Yorkshire mayor.

The discussion will be documented in detail, following the pattern of this event about homes and liveable places.

Same Skies is the citizen-led regional democracy network and think tank for West Yorkshire, founded by volunteers in 2015.
