Rt Hon Kevan Jones
Member of Parliament for North Durham
“Hate Crime is a serious offence, causing significant harm and distress to victims and adversely affecting the cohesion of our society. I welcome this new initiative to tackle this scourge and endorse Durham Police’s zero tolerance stance on Hate Crime.”
Rt Revd Paul Butler
The Bishop of Durham
“Speaking or acting hatefully of others is simply wrong. It is unacceptable in any society where respect and care for one another is valued. I trust this campaign will help us all to speak well of, and act kindly towards, one another.”
Professor Stuart Corbridge
Vice-Chancellor, Durham University
“Durham University is a global university, welcoming staff and students from a wide range of backgrounds and nationalities. We aim to create an open and inclusive environment where all members of our community feel safe and can achieve their full potential. We are pleased to be supporting this campaign.”
