National Hate Crime Awareness Week 2016

National Hate Crime Awareness Week 2016 will take place from 8th to 15th October. So we need you all start thinking about what you will do to support the week this year!

You can check out the Stop Hate UK site and also visit 17-24-30’s website for more details for ideas on getting involved. Also, be sure to look out for and use the hashtag #NHCAW on Twitter.

There are plenty of ways people got involved for previous years.

  • People put their Hands up for Challenging Hate – we were inundated with photos; see the Galleries page to see some of them
  • Candlelit vigils were held across the country, including London, Sussex, Devon, Suffolk and Berkshire.
  • There was plenty of coverage in the media

In past years, we’ve been overwhelmed with the amount of support, and would like to thank everybody for their letters and statements, including our Patron, Baroness Lawrence, former Prime Minister David Cameron and many other senior politicians, including former London Mayor Boris Johnson.

Our thanks also go out to all those who have been involved in, planning and attending events across the country, and for those who organised and stood vigil to remember all those affected by Hate.  You can see photos of the service can be found on our Galleries page.

So, let’s get ready for National Hate Crime Awareness Week 2016 and make it one of the most successful ever!
