KD pupils star in anti-hate crime DVD

The Jewish Chronicle - - Community - BY JONATHAN KALMUS

MANCH­ESTER KING David High pupils are fea­tured in a Crown Pros­e­cu­tion Ser­vice film re­con­struct­ing an­ti­semitic in­ci­dents, which will be shown to po­ten­tial young of­fend­ers.

The DVD will be part of a re­source pack dis­trib­uted to schools across the re­gion high­light­ing the con­se­quences for per­pe­tra­tors of racially or re­li­giously mo­ti­vated hate crime.

North-west area CPS com­mu­nity en­gage­ment man­ager Stacey Davis said the DVD “will give im­por­tant in­for­ma­tion about racist and re­li­giously ag­gra­vated hate crime and what the law is.

“If we can in­crease un­der­stand­ing among the younger gen­er­a­tion of why abuse and as­saults on peo­ple be­cause of their race or re­li­gion are un­ac­cept­able, we have a greater chance of re­duc­ing the num­ber of at­tacks.”

Avail­able from Septem­ber, the DVD is sup­ported by the Na­tional Union of Teach­ers and the An­thony Walker Foun­da­tion, set up by the fam­ily of a black teenager mur­dered in Liver­pool in 2005.

The Com­mu­nity Se­cu­rity Trust’s Mark Gard­ner said: “CST’S north­ern re­gion of­fice has worked closely with the CPS in this project and we are very grate­ful to King David for help­ing to make it a re­al­ity.”
