National Hate Crime Awareness Week #NHCAW is an annual event organised by 17-24-30 No To Hate Crime Campaign in partnership with Stop Hate UK.
The aim of the week is to encourage as many local authorities, key partners and communities affected by hate crime to work together to promote as much hate crime awareness as possible.
You can download our national-hate-crime-awareness-week press-release.
This year, we set up three Thunderclaps to mark the countdown to the start of the week.
Thunderclap 1 – 2 months to go
The first Thunderclap went out on the 8th August to mark 2 months to go until the launch of #NHCAW. It was supported by 110 people with a social reach of 231,938.
Thunderclap 2 – 1 month to go
The second Thunderclap went out on the 8th September to mark one month to go until the launch of #NHCAW. It was supported by 126 people with a social reach of 465,835.
The first two Thunderclaps were set up to help promote the launch event at St Paul’s Cathedral. Advertisings free tickets available on our Eventbrite event page here.
Thunderclap 3 – Today is the launch of NHCAW
The third and final Thunderclap is scheduled to go out on the 8th October to mark the launch of #NHCAW. It will go out at 6pm, just before the launch event takes place at St Paul’s Cathedral – and we are asking as many people on Twitter and Facebook to click on the link below and add their support.
Everyone who joins the Thunderclap increases it’s social reach – which is why we ask you to click on the above link and add your support now. Every supporter counts! and you could help us promote #NHCAW to thousands of people!
Our target this time is to get 200 supporters with a social reach of a million people!
The third and final Thunderclap for #NHCAW 2016 links to a page on this WordPress site where we will be promoting all of the letters of support that we have received this year!
You can view some of the letters of support we have received already here. More letters of support will be added as we receive them!
