Raising awareness of anti-LGBT hate crime

FRA attended a conference of the EU-funded ‘Call it Hate: Raising Awareness of Anti-LGBT Hate Crime’ project.

It was part of a panel on tackling anti-LGBT hate crime at the international level, together with representatives of UN’s Human Rights Office OCHCR and the Council of Europe’s European Commission against Racism and Intolerance.

During the conference, research papers and (social) media campaigns were presented, to raise awareness on hate crimes against LGBT people. FRA also fed into the main results of the research part of the project.
