Time is running out to nominate unsung individuals on the frontline of tackling hate crime, in an initiative supported by Jewish News and Huffington Post.
The #No2H8 awards will recognise individuals and organisations battling anti-Semitism, Islamophobia, homophobia and other forms of hate and will culminate in a glittering awards ceremony in central London in October.
The awards – conceived by Faith Matters – are held with the support of partners including the Community Security Trust (CST), Tell MAMA, GALOP, Stop Hate UK and Stonewall. The initiative, now in its second year, is chaired by former CST chief executive Richard Benson.
“It is time to celebrate the enormous capacity for good that sits within our country and which ensures our continuing resilience against hatred, racism and intolerance,” said Faith Matters founder Fiyaz Mughal.
From the nominations received, it will be down to an expert judging panel to decide the recipients of awards in 10 categories including young, community enforcement and parliamentarian upstander as well as community volunteer. The panel includes Rabbi Baroness Neuberger, Lord Carlile and Nazir Afzal, chief executive of the Association of Police and Crime Commissioners.
• Deadline to cast your vote is 26 August.
