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

We were overwhelmed with the amount of support, and would like to thank everybody for their letters and statements, including our Patron, Baroness Lawrence, Prime Minister David Cameron, and other senior politicians.  We have also received letters of support from the Mayor of London, Boris Johnson and the Minister for Crime prevention Norman Baker MP.

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