July 2023. This month Proud Baggies role as a Third Party Hate Crime Reporting Centre was highlighted in a Sandwell Council video alongside other local support groups. The video was produced as part of the #StopHateSandwell campaign designed to encourage victims and witnesses of hate crimes to come forward.
