WeSupportHamilton is a way of sharing your story about your experience of hate in the way it makes most sense to you to offer resources and support that think about your needs in navigating existing systems. On this platform, there is a way to report or tell your story. There are resources to help you understand options that may be available to you to navigate your situation.
Upon submission of your story, you decide how much you would like to share, who you would like to seek support from and what happens with your story and the data that you have provided.
You may decide that telling of your story coincides with the need for care and support. A list of resources is available here to help you meet these needs and who you would like to share your story and data with.
The story that you share is included as part of anonymized aggregate data that is used for understanding the experiences of hate. The details of your story are only shared with others through your explicit consent which you provide during your submission and only for the data points that have been provided, e.g. contact information so HARRC may be able to further support you as you navigate the various support mechanisms available for your situation.
