This year, CST will be supporting National Hate Crime Awareness Week, organised by 17-24-30 No To Hate Crime Campaign alongside Stop Hate UK. The main aim of 17-24-30 is to actively remember the victims of hate crime and to support those whose lives have been permanently changed due to acts of hate. The prevailing message of the week is that hate crime is not acceptable in our communities and that we will work together to tackle hate crime wherever it is found. National Hate Crime Awareness Week was founded in 2009 to commemorate the 10th anniversary of the London Nail bomb attacks in Brixton.
