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.
