Hate motivated crime and violence are a gross attempt to the most basic fundamental rights which affects not only the victim but also the community the victim belongs to and society at large.

Hate crimes are highly unreported because of structural, practical and, above all, social barriers faced by its victims. Furthermore, authorities have difficulties in identifying the hate motive underlying an offence which can jeopardize the correct classification of the crime as a hate crime and, consequently, the adequate support provided to and the recovery process of its victims. Finally, there is still little understanding and a great lack of awareness among society and within vulnerable communities concerning hate motivated violence and crime.

With this in mind, the Portuguese Association for Victim Support (APAV), supported by its partners in the project Hate No More: Training and Awareness Raising to Combat Hate Crime and Hate Speech, will organise the Hate no More Conference: support to victims of hate crime, taking place in Lisbon, September 26th, at the Auditorium of Campus da Justiça
