#STOPHATEAB Provincial Youth Forum
April 22, 2014

The #STOPHATEAB Provincial Youth Forum, hosted by the Alberta Hate Crimes Committee, will engage young people in becoming active responders to hate in Alberta. We would like to thank the Department of Justice, Government of Canada for their support to this forum as part of the National Victims of Crime Awareness Week.

Who:  Young people, between the ages of 16-24.

What will we be doing at the forum?

 Foster an understanding of hate, its impacts and the important role young people can play in being an active witness

 Hear from young people who have experienced hate first-hand

 Play an integral role in creating identities and scenarios relapted to hate which will be incorporated into an interactive smart phone app

 Connect and share ideas with youth from across Alberta

 Kickstart the #stophateab campaign by engaging in social media and sharing perspectives on hate and inclusion

 Watch the 2015 Calgary Hate Crime Awards ceremony and engage with award recipients

The John Humphrey Centre is excited to contribute to this landmark project in Alberta in partnership with AHCC which will be a model for not only the rest of Canada, but the world. Find out more information about the Forum and how to register here.
