Residents and community leaders will talk about the issues surrounding hate crime and unite with the council on methods of tackling them.
There will also be an important practical workshops for attendees that will allow them to design solutions to scenarios and to discuss how they feel hate crime could be better tackled in the borough.
Cllr Michael Pavey, Brent Council’s cabinet member for stronger communities, said: “All crime is terrible, but hate crime is uniquely bad. Hate crime is about being targeted by criminals simply because of who you are. Hate crime is particularly offensive in Brent because we’re so proud of our diversity.
