The roadshows will run throughout next week at Northallerton and District Volunteer Centre, Great Ayton Library and district council offices in Easingwold, Northallerton, Stokesley, Reeth, Leyburn, Hawes, Richmond and Colburn, as well as at United Response at the Old Boot Shop in Easingwold on June 19 and Richmond Methodist Church between midday and 3pm on June 21.
The hate crime hotline number is 0845 200 2495.
