Not In Our Town

Not In Our Town is a project of The Working Group, an Oakland-based nonprofit founded in 1988. Not In Our Town was launched in 1995 with our landmark PBS film that documented the heroic efforts of Billings, Montana citizens who stood up for their neighbors after a series of hate crimes. The original Not In Our Town campaign catalyzed a diverse grassroots movement that inspired hundreds of communities in the United States and around the world to take action against hate.

Not In Our Town’s mission is to guide, support and inspire people and communities to work together to stop hate and build safe, inclusive environments for all.

 

Southwark Mediation Centre – The Hate Crimes Project

The Hate crimes project has been running at Southwark Mediation Centre since 2000. It began as a two year pilot project but owing to its huge success, it has been running ever since.

Mediation is a voluntary, neutral and confidential process which allows parties in dispute to communicate and build improved relationships for the future. The power of mediation lies in the fact that the parties choose it and have an active part in any outcomes or resolutions made. Mediators are neutral, not on anybody’s side. Parties in dispute may wish to meet, or where they have chosen not to, the mediators can go between the parties ‘shuttling’ points of agreement, regarding wants and needs.

The project has been very successful in tackling racial harassment and homophobia in the community, working with both the victim and perpetrator. Residents have reported experiencing spitting, egg throwing, name calling, violence etc. sometimes for many years. Those who experience this want to live in the community free of fear and use mediation to express their needs as court action does not always produce the desired outcome. The project accepts self-referrals and referrals from other agencies including the Hate Crime Unit, the Police, Housing and SASBU.
