The Belfast Giants are extremely proud to be involved in the UNITE AGAINST HATE Campaign. Hate crime creates such a terrible image of Northern Ireland and although it is a small minority taking part in this, it is a black mark across this great country. We all need to do our part whether it is in our neighbourhood or on the playing field. There is no place for hate crime in Northern Ireland and the more people that understand this and get behind this campaign, the more chance we have of eliminating it.

Arts & Disability Forum
The Arts & Disability Forum is proud to support and work in partnership with the UNITE AGAINST HATE campaign. Hate crime is a thread of corrosion running through society and some of the most despicable of hate crimes have been committed against disabled people. Many disabled people internalise the negativity, not bothering to report their experiences and routinely putting up with the prejudice that underpins hate crime. The ADF is a development agency working towards cultural equity. We support and develop disabled people’s involvement in the arts, deliberately reaching out to other oppressed minorities and rejoicing in diversity. Unite Against Hate places stepping stones for tolerance and sharing. It has the potential to transform Northern Ireland.

We are calling on all individuals, groups and communities to join with us in this campaign. Many people have already pledged their support and we keen that everyone in Northern Ireland gets a chance to make their contribution to the Unite against Hate campaign.
