Started by 17 -24 30, The purpose of the Hate Crime Awareness Week is to tackle Hate Crime issues by raising awareness of what Hate Crime is and how to respond to it, encourage reporting, and promote local support services and resources. They want to encourage local authorities (Police, Council and others) to work in partnership with local groups and community organisations to host a series of Hate Crime Awareness Events throughout the UK and Abroad in the week leading up to the International Day of Hope and Remembrance for those affected by Hate Crime.

International Day of Hope and Remembrance for those affected by Hate Crime #IDOHAR

The first International Day of Hope and Remembrance was launched at the London Vigil against Hate Crime which took place on the 30th October 2009 after the death of Ian Baynham who was homophobically abused and beaten in Trafalgar Square.

Over the past seven years the third Saturday of October has been established as a day when people around the globe organise solidarity vigils and events to show support to those who have been affected by Hate Crime.
