Topic 1: Disability Hate Crime This set of resources (guidance notes above) can be used to explore the issue of Disability Hate Crime. It features four scenarios based on the life experiences of several disabled people, discussions with disabled people themselves about being the victims of disability hate crime and the impact that it had and continues to have on their lives. The presentations and videos are available here. They must be viewed online to function properly. Topic 2: Race & Religious Hate Crime This set of resources can be used by teachers to explore the issue of Racist and Religious Hate Crime.
The Crown Prosecution Service (CPS), National Union of Teachers (NUT) and the Anthony Walker Foundation (AWF) have worked together to produce the resource pack and pupils from schools in the North West acted out, and helped to devise, the dramatised scenarios of racist and religious incidents included in the presentation. They provide starting points for discussion and are based on real life experiences of the young people who took part in the project. The presentations and videos are available here. They must be viewed online to function properly. Activity 3: Sexual Orientation and Transgender Hate Crime Homophobic and transphobic bullying and hate crime are particularly serious. They attack people's right to feel safe and confident about their sexual orientation and their gender identity. As with all incidents and crimes that are motivated by prejudice and hate, they have a devastating effect on those who are targeted.
CPS North West has worked with the Ministry of Justice, Stonewall and Gendered Intelligence to develop a free educational resource pack aimed at tackling homophobic and transphobic bullying and hate crime amongst young people. It contains video clips, information and lesson plans, to help teachers to explore these issues. We hope the resources will increase young people's understanding about homophobic and transphobic prejudice, educate them about their responsibilities as citizens and provide them with the knowledge and skills to help them challenge the attitudes and behaviours that lead to bullying and hate crime.
Young people from the Sheena Amos Youth Trust, UCLAN (University of Central Lancashire), Dame Elizabeth Cadbury Technology College and LGBT Youth North West helped to devise and act out the dramatised scenarios in the resource. They are based on the real life experiences of the young people and the adult role models who took part in the project. The presentations and videos are available here. They must be viewed online to function properly. Review Once you have delivered this session, complete this review. #AllTopics #Nonaccredited
