Reporting Prejudice Related Violence: reporting is the key to change

Reporting Hate Crime

Many people from minority communities have experienced incidents motivated by prejudice in Tasmania. However, very few incidents are reported.

People who are victims of prejudice motivated incidents may be seriously impacted, but they are not sure what to do about it. This workshop explains what these incidents and crimes are under Tasmanian law, how they can be reported to authorities, and what to expect if you report them.

The workshop will also explain why reporting these incidents and crimes is the key to change.
