Mark Healey is the founder of 17-24-30 National Hate Crime Awareness Week.
When he started 17-24-30 over 10 years ago Mark simply wanted to create a space online where people affected by the London Nail Bomb attacks on Brixton, Brick Lane and Soho could stay in touch but then Ian Baynham was killed in Trafalgar Square and 17-24-30 ended up organising the first London Vigil Against Hate Crime that attracted over 10,000 people - with more taking part on-line.
Since then National Hate Crime Awareness Week has evolved and become a movement - bringing thousands of people across the UK together to say NO TO HATE CRIME, to encourage hate crime reporting, to improve the way we respond to hate crime and prevent further incidents from taking place.
Striving to make our communities safer for everyone.
Mark has set up a Sponsor-Me fundraising appeal on the Charities Trust website and am looking for your support to help Mark raise the funds we need to keep this important work going. Please make a donation.

About the April Acts of Remembrance, Remembering with Rainbows, Brixton, Brick Lane and Soho, archive section.
We welcome your feedback.
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 we formally changed our name to 17-24-30 National Hate Crime Awareness Week also referred to as 17-24-30, 17-24-30 NationalHCAW, and registered as a charitable Incorporated Organisation with the Charity Commission. Charity No 1184819

17-24-30 NationalHCAW encourages local authorities (Police and Councils), key partners and communities affected by hate crime to work together to tackle local hate crime.
The week of action takes place between the second to third Saturday in October each year.
It aims to bring people together to stand in solidarity with those affected by hate crime, to remember those we have lost, and support those who need ongoing support. To educate to prevent hate crime.
We run an annual campaign promoting H.O.P.E.

In September 2009, Ian Baynham was homophobically abused and beaten unconscious in Trafalgar Square. After two 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;
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!

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.
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.
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.
