The Scottish Government and politicians should lead by example

Participants proposed that the authorities and people in power should lead the way and model encouraging equality. The Scottish Government should similarly model appropriate behaviours to address prejudice. The example of the First Minister going to a mosque for the minute’s silence had been well received by the Muslim community. These kinds of acts can be helpful in addressing hate crimes.

 

Why the contribution is important

This is important because important public figures are influential and can behave as role models. The Scottish Government has the ability to lead the way on tackling prejudice and they should take this opportunity. They should model the kinds of behaviours that they want to encourage.
