A vigil is due to take place today by the fountain in the Old Steine, Brighton, as part of the International Day Against Hate Crime.
Two Sussex Police officers will be among those attending the second Brighton and Hove “No to Hate Crime Vigil” from 7pm to 9pm.
The Rainbow Chorus will provide the music.
PC Rich Bridger, from the Kemp Town Neighbourhood Policing Team, will be speaking at the event.
He said: “The vigil is part of a worldwide day of hope and remembrance for those affected by all forms of hate crime.
“I will be speaking at the vigil about reporting hate crime and reassuring everyone they will always be treated with respect and have their complaints taken seriously.”
Last year more than 200 people attended the vigil in Brighton as nearer 10,000 people gathered in Trafalgar Square, London.
