We are grateful for the following comments from the Home Secretary, the Rt. Hon Sajid Javid MP. The No2H8 Crime Awards have gone from strength to strength over the last 3 years and this year, we have the largest gathering of hate crime partners, police forces, politicians and members of the public, who work daily countering hatred, prejudice and intolerance.
Statement from the Home Secretary on the No2H8 Crime Awards:
“These awards are a powerful opportunity to promote what is positive in British society. We are lucky to live in a diverse, tolerant and open society and the people that we celebrate tonight have taken a stand for these important principles. Just as hate crimes impact right across our communities, those who confront such prejudice come from a wide range of faiths and backgrounds and we must take heart from that”.
