It is not right that acts of hatred often go unreported.
Many acts of hatred against LGBTIQ people remains unreported in Slovenia. The reasons are most often the fear of “coming out” to the family and law enforcement, the belief that the event is not sufficient to report, or the concern that the police will not handle the report correctly.
Research shows that victims of violence often do not know where to seek help or who can offer them information, protection and mediation. Police is not always the right address. Namely, there are several inspection services, independent bodies and other institutions in Slovenia, which are responsible for assistance and action, especially in certain cases of discrimination.
To help victims of different acts of hatred, we have therefore developed a website that offers various options for action. Depending on the circumstances, the system built into the website will suggest the recommended next steps.
If you think that you need support, counseling or more information when reporting violence, you can also seek additional support from us.
As privacy is of special importance in reporting discrimination and hate crimes, the website offers accurate information on the level of privacy or anonymity of the website itself and the possible next steps offered. As a result, along the notification process you are informed oh the level of use of your presonal information.
This icon means anonymity – no personal data is in use and is not stored.
This icon means confidentiality – personal data is collected but not passed on to anyone else.
