17-24-30 NationalHCAW

17-24-30 was initially founded as a Facebook group in March 2009 by Mark Healey and Ryan Parkins to mark the 10th anniversary of the London Nail Bomb attacks on Brixton, Brick Lane and Soho.


17-24-30 takes it's name from the dates of the three attacks; 17th April, 24th April and 30th April.


Since April 2010 we have organised the three April Acts of Remembrance. Two smaller outreach events in Brixton and Brick Lane on the 17th and 24th April, and a larger gathering in Soho on the 30th April.


In 2010 17-24-30 evolved from a Facebook group into a small charity called 17-24-30 No To Hate Crime Campaign registered with Her Majesty's Revenue and Customs (HMRC Ref: XT30898). 


In January 2019 it changed it's name to 17-24-30 National Hate Crime Awareness Week also referred to as 17-24-30 NationalHCAW. We recently submitted an application to the Charity Commission to become a Community Interest Organisation CIO. Registration is expected to be completed in April 2019.

National Hate Crime Awareness Week #NationalHCAW

Planning your NationalHCAW

 NationalHCAW stands for National Hate Crime Awareness Week


The week of action takes place between the second to third Saturday in October each year


It aims to bring people together, to stand with those affected by hate crime, to remember those we have lost, and to be accessible to those who need our ongoing support


We encourage local authorities (Police and Councils) to work alongside key partners and communities affected by hate crime


We spread a message of H.O.P.E.

  • Hate crime awareness - running awareness events to increase public knowledge.
  • Operational responses to hate crime - encouraging people to think about how they would respond if hate crime happened to someone they know.
  • Preventing hate crime where possible.
  • Empowering communities to report hate crime and work together.

NATIONALHCAW Archive

 In September 2009, Ian Baynham was homophobically abused and beaten unconscious in Trafalgar Square. After four weeks in a coma he died from the injuries he sustain. His death inspired the first London Vigil Against Hate Crime which was held on the 30th October 2009


It was one of the first events of its kind to go viral on social media, over 29,000 people shared the event on Facebook and over 10,000 people attended the first vigil in Trafalgar Square.


The London Vigils took place between 2009 to 2012, whilst other vigils took place in Brighton, Kettering, Milton Keynes and Norwich, amongst other places around the UK.


In 2012 the London Vigils evolved into National Hate Crime Awareness Week #NationalHCAW.


Each year between the second to third Saturday in October we;


  • Organise the national week across the UK.
  • Write to key figures across the social and political spectrum encouraging their participation.
  • Create and distribute resources to promote the week.
  • Use our social media to spread a national message of H.O.P.E.
  • Hold a service of Hope and Remembrance  at St Paul's Cathedral in London.
  • Register events and promote them on our NationalHCAW  Google Maps.
  • Work in partnership with local authorities, key partners and communities affected by hate crime.


In 2017 we conducted a National Freedom of Information request to every council in the country and found that in 2012 79 councils took part in the national week, by 2017 this had risen to 209 councils with another 90 saying they were considering getting involved. We want to keep this momentum going!

Reporting Hate Crime

In an emergency always call the police 999

In the first instance we encourage people to report to the Police however if you don't want to speak to your local police then you can try your local council (some but not all provide some hate crime reporting guidance on their websites), or you can report an incident to a third party organisation.


Police

You can report hate crime directly to your local police or via True Vision. Dial 999 if it is an emergency and you need immediate assistance. Call the police on 101 when it is not an emergency.


Councils

Check out the national Google Map we have created which provides links to every council website in the UK. We have ticked in green those that provide hate crime information on their websites, and crossed in red those that don't. 


Our hope is that every council around the UK will eventually provide basic hate crime information and advice on their websites.


Third Party Organisations

There are a number of specialist hate crime organisations that you can contact for advice and support. We have provided links to some of them on our website.
