When a hate crime occurs, it not only affects the individual, but their families, the victim’s community and society at large. These crimes can make an individual feel confused as to when and what to report, isolated and/or cause fear of retaliation. 43 Division and the Toronto Police Service want to ensure all members of the community are empowered to report the occurrence of a hate-motivated crime to the police. The significance of November 16, the release date of this video, is that it is the International Day for Tolerance – In 1964 United Nations introduced the Civil Rights Act of 1964, which banned discrimination on the basis of race, colour, religion, sex, or national origin. This day is significant in building awareness and encourage equality and diversity across the world and that everyone has a right to their expression, religion and their conscience without fear of bias or ridicule.
