One Scotland

Dear haters,
you're going to hate this, but we've had enough.
Yours, Scotland

"Scotland believes in equality for all. No one should be denied opportunities because of age, disability, gender, gender identity, race, religion or belief, or sexual orientation." One Scotland
One Scotland is a Scottish Government campaign celebrating the progress made on equality "whilst recognising the work still to be done to achieve a truly inclusive society" (via). Part of this campaign is fighting hate crime - addressing bigots, disablists, homophobes, racists, and transphobes - and encouraging people to report hate crime whenever it happens:

::: Your hate is not welcome here, Yours Scotland: WATCH
::: Aneel's Story: WATCH

"Yes, we. Because no matter what your race, creed, colour or culture, you’re welcome here. After all, it’s the contribution of the many, that makes Scotland what it is: one great country. 
The truth is, all of us – living, working, laughing, sharing and loving life in Scotland – have more in common than that which divides us. 
This is Scotland standing up for what matters at a time when it couldn’t matter more. Because the reality is – and the evidence shows – a more equal, more diverse society makes for a more productive, happier society. So it’s with pride we say that in Scotland there’s no V, there’s just you, me and we. 
And we are Scotland."
We Are Scotland
