The week starts with a special launch event at St Paul’s Cathedral, followed by hate crime awareness events across the UK.  The theme this year is ‘Standing Together’ with all the people affected by acts of hatred around the world.

The week is organised by the anti-hate crime charity 17-24-30 No Hate Crime Campaign, in partnership with Stop Hate UK, the leading Hate Crime charity.

The week’s aim is to encourage local authorities, local councils and local police services to work together with communities affected by Hate Crime across the UK to stage Hate Crime awareness events.

Last year over 200 events were organised and registered on the 17-24-30 website which lists many hate crime events and activities taking place around the UK.
