A: Our primary aim is to organise and facilitate the April Acts of Remembrance #AAR to mark the anniversaries of the attacks on Brixton, Brick Lane and Soho, and National Hate Crime Awareness Week #NationalHCAW in October.
We believe that it is important to remember the victims of hate crime, to show our support to those who have had their lives changed forever by acts of hate.
We state that hate crime is no acceptable in our communities and that we will work together to tackle this problem.
17-24-30’s secondary aim is to spread a message of H.O.P.E. across the UK and beyond to encourage local authorities (including councils and police services), key partners and communities affected by hate crime to work together.

A: H.O.P.E. stands for
- Hate crime awareness,
- Operational response to hate crime,
