The Tackling Disability Hate Crime comic was launched with an event at DCCS on December 21st. Representatives from DCCS, Advocating Together, The Rank Foundation, Police Scotland, and invited guests were in attendance to help cut the cake marking the culmination of months of work producing the comic.
The comic was created by artists and Comics Clubbers at DCCS in collaboration with a group from Advocating Together Dundee and the Dundee Safe Place initiative. It demonstrates examples of disability hate crime, and then gives advice on what to do if it is experienced. This includes reporting to the Police and using Keep Safe places.
You can download a digital copy of the comic at the Advocating Together website.
The local press were also in attendance and there was a great feature in the Evening Telegraph just after Christmas.
