On 10th June, Sparks and Speaking Up group members joined together for our biggest Respect event yet!
They spent the whole day at Intu Bromley talking to people about hate crime. They collected hundreds of signatures. People promised not to use words like ‘retard’ and ‘spaz.’
We had fantastic support from Bromley Safer Transport police and from James Cleverly, our patron.
Here is what people said:
“It’s a wonderful thing that you’re doing.”
“You touched my heart.”
“We are behind you.”
“Retard is not a good word. It should be cut out altogether.”
