Reveals the real level of hate crime
Many experience violence because of racism & intolerance. It may be because of their skin colour due to their ethnic or immigration background. But it may also be due their religion, sexual orientation or a disability.
Some groups experience 2x as much violence as the general population.
Up to 9 in 10 do not report attacks anywhere. Most think nothing would change if they reported it, say it is too difficult to report or they do not trust the police.
