Chris Speaks Up

We were among 100+ people to attend the Bradford District Hate Crime Strategy Launch today. Other attendees included West Yorkshire Police, the Police & Crime Commissioner’s Office, The Crown Prosecution Service, Victim Support as well as numerous community groups. Only 2 days beforehand, we were asked to speak! In true Why Don’t We fashion, we were determined that the voices of the people we support should be heard loud and clear. So, using a video we created for our AGM, we devised a 10 minute presentation about the work we do on disability hate crime. Chris introduced it and finished off with a call to arms “Let’s tackle hate crime together”, which was very well received by the delegates. He even let me say a few words about Why Don’t We. We can all be proud of our contribution to tackling this important issue. Well done Chris! Image courtesy of Charles Dacre
