The horrific killing of George Floyd has prompted an outpouring of anger at the continued scourge of racial injustice across society. Queen Mary University of London stands with our students, staff and our community against racism in all its forms. Read the statement on racial justice from Professor Colin Bailey on behalf of the Queen Mary Senior Executive Team. We encourage you to report any instances of racism (including microaggressions) at Queen Mary, either with your name or anonymously.  Our Support pages offer information about organisations who can provide specialist support.

Covid-19/Coronavirus:
Queen Mary remains open, however, please note that if you make a report and request contact from a member of staff, you may be offered a phone appointment or email liaison rather than a face to face appointment until further notice. We know that COVID-19 will have serious impacts on the lives of anyone facing domestic abuse. If you feel unsafe with the person/people you are living with, please see this Safety Advice from Women's Aid 
Hate crime/incidents: Hate Crime is any criminal offence where anyone believes the victim has been targeted because of their:

  • disability
  • race or ethnic identity
  • religion/belief
  • gender or gender identity
  • sexual orientation
  • age
  • immigration status or nationality
  • or any other perceived aspect of their identity.
Hate crime can also include:

  • physical attacks – pushing and shoving to serious assaults
  • verbal abuse – using derogatory or insulting words 
  • threatening behaviour, bullying and intimidation 
  • damage to property – including offensive graffiti
  • harassment
  • malicious communications – threatening or offensive mail, texts or emails 
  • damage to property and violence
  • hate can also be directed at whole communities – for example, vandalism of places of worship, or offensive graffiti in public places.
Hate incidents are incidents that do not constitute a criminal offence but cause alarm, distress or harassment where anyone believes the victim has been targeted because of their race/ethnicity, religion/belief, gender/gender identity, disability, age, sexual orientation or any other actual or perceived difference.

Some forms of hate incidents may also constitute Bullying and Harassment. Find out more on Bullying and Harassment.
