4. Why should I report hate crime?

Hate crimes hurt the victim and the rest of the community too. By reporting a hate crime you may stop it from happening to someone else.

Hate crimes against Gypsies, Travellers and Roma happen a lot, but we do not report them as often as other people.  If we want more to be done to protect us and our families, we need to prove how big the problem is. 

The more hate crimes that we report, the more seriously they will be taken.
