National Hate Crime Awareness Week 2017


This year's National Hate Crime Awareness Week took place from 14th to 21st October 2017. 

On Sunday 15th October, a special service took place at St Paul's Cathedral in the City of London which included a very moving National Act of Hope and Remembrance for those affected by Hate Crime. 

At the service, the National Candle of Hope and Remembrance was lit in memory of MP Jo Cox, and all those killed and injured during the London Bridge, Westminster Bridge, Manchester, Parsons Green and Finsbury Mosque attacks.

Caroline Saville and Patrick Lilley (Labour Party West End Ward Candidates) joined civic leaders from across the country as well as City of London Common Councilman Mary Durcan and her husband Jim who were also in attendance.

National Hate Crime Awareness Week #NHCAW is organised by 17-24-30 No To Hate Crime Campaign in partnership with Stop Hate UK. For more information please visit
