You may have read recent reports that students in Newcastle were subject to racist abuse. NUSU does not tolerate hate crimes of any kind and stands in solidarity with anyone who has experienced prejudice or hate because of who they are. Our city is not diverse enough and it means that ignorance and bigotry can go unchallenged. We must condemn actions like these, while simultaneously creating a welcoming and safe environment. By working together and educating one another, we can tackle the attitudes that often divide us.
If you have experienced a hate crime you can report it here. These reports are essential in supporting students but also in helping us campaign and create positive change.
