To raise awareness for National Hate Crime Awareness Week, (www.nationalhcaw.uk) students attended #Hopefest at Pop Brixton.
This inclusive and accessible event gave students hope and confidence through sharing their personal stories of hate crime experiences, creating a support network and raising awareness about hate crime in the community.
The event turned a negative into a positive; a celebration of hope and community spirit. Students joined in with drumming and dancing and enjoyed speeches from inspirational speakers.
Student Kaya said “this was lots of fun, I have had a really good day and met the police!”
