Including Mersey Cheshire Crown Prosecution Service, Merseyside and Cheshire Police local authorities from certain parts of the region. Local businesses and key members from our local communities as well as the Merseyside Crime Commissioner who chaired the closing Hate Crime Panel.This follow on conference will look at how the landscape has changed since then and will hear the results of the largest LBTINBQQA Hate Crime research project carried out across the region. The conference will examine expectations from 2015 and see how things have developed. In 2015 the conference committed itself to introducing the concept of intersectionality into the debate and examine how individuals are affected by it.Places are going to be strictly limited and the booking service will open in due course.
The conference will be a full day and be a mix of workshops as well as a host of amazing speakers.

Work is already underway in planning next year’s ITYD, so if you want to be involved get in contact with us. We already have a guest list but there is still room to hear about what your group is doing. The only conditions are is that by young people we use 26yrs as the cut off point and the work must relate to our diverse communities, so if you are trans , non-binary, intersex or any variation in between we want to showcase your work. Especially if your country does not support its people’s who self identify as such. Guest speakers can be of any age.
