Hate Crime Taxi Campaign

Posted in DFN

Developing from Negatives (DfN) launched our new Hate Crime awareness campaign at Preston Railway Station on 12th June.

We have teamed up with Preston City Council Licensing and Black Cab drivers to get the message out. All of Preston’s black cabs will soon have campaign stickers on their ‘tip up’ seats with details of how to report hate crime.

Jennifer Carthy, DfN Co-ordinator said ‘We are delighted with the partners involved in our new campaign and this is an excellent way to raise awareness of hate crime and its impacts. We hope to expand this campaign to other public transport providers in the near future’.

A team of DfN volunteers and staff had an information stall in the station which attracted quite a few commuters from Preston and nationally.
