We are facing unprecedented challenges due to the Coronavirus crisis this year, our annual event at St Paul's Cathedral is cancelled, we have a greatly reduced volunteer team - so our efforts will focus on resource distribution and social media.
Our thoughts and prayers are will all those who have lost loved ones during this crisis - we have lost three of our own fabulous volunteers and supporters this year.
We will do our best to deliver what we can - and galvanise our efforts to prepare for a huge comeback to mark National Hate Crime Awareness Week's tenth anniversary next year in October 2021.
Participate in our online Hate Crime Round Tables
We held our first online hate crime round table on the 9th June.
Join our mailing list as we plan to organise more of these events.
Think about funding for your activities - do you need to apply for local, regional or national grants? We are applying for funds and hope to have funding confirmed by the end of July.
Now is the time to start thinking about what you would like to do during National Hate Crime Awareness Week and who you are going to work with.
Check out our Report Hate Crime section for links to key partners including;

Think about how you can include people affected by disability hate crime this year!
National Hate Crime Google Map 2020
We have set up the National Google Map to register any hate crime events taking place around the UK throughout the year.
We have added markers to show council websites and have used the freedom of information research we conducted in 2017 to indicate which councils provide hate crime information on their websites and which councils don't.
One of our aims is to get all councils to have information about hate crime on their websites.
NB: We repeated our freedom of information research in 2019 and will be reviewing and updating the council markers on the Google Map this year.

WE STAND TOGETHER ACROSS THE UK

3. Promote our We Stand Together slogan and our message of H.O.P.E.
H.O.P.E. stands for hate crime awareness, operational responses to hate crime, preventing hate crime and empowering communities to respond to hate crime.
We will be updating our series of social media graphics to promote No Place For Hate in the UK and H.O.P.E. and invite you to develop your own as well.

Making sure everyone knows what hate crime is, what impact it has on our communities and how we can work together to prevent it.
Understand how the police respond to hate crime, and think how we can prepare our communities and ourselves to respond as well.
Making sure we learn from previous hate crime attacks so that we can prevent them happening again.
Ensuring local authorities consult, resource and involve our communities in the process and development of local hate crime action plans.
17-24-30 is the first part of our charity's name; 17-24-30 NationalHCAW. It is a combination of the dates of the three nail bomb attacks on Brixton (17th), Brick Lane (24th) and Soho (30th April 1999)
NationalHCAW is the second part of our charity's name; 17-24-30 NationalHCAW. It stands for National Hate Crime Awareness Week.
17-24-30 NationalHCAW exists to organise the April Acts of Remembrance, National Hate Crime Awareness Week in October and our annual H.O.P.E. hate crime awareness campaign.
The April Acts of Remembrance are three acts of remembrance to mark the anniversaries of the three nail Bomb attacks on Brixton, Brick Lane and Soho which take place on the 17th, 24th and 30th April each year.
National Hate Crime Awareness Week is a week of action that takes place in the UK to encourage local authorities (police and councils), key partners and communities affected by hate crime to work together to tackle local hate crime.
The campaign promotes H.O.P.E.
(a) To raise Hate crime awareness,
(b) To improve Operational responses,
(c) To Prevent hate crime and,
(d) To to Empower communities.
Since 2007 five strands of hate crime have been monitored by the Police.
Hate Crime directed towards members of alternative subcultures is also recognised by some police services.
Hate crimes are any crimes that are targeted at a person because of hostility or prejudice towards that person’s:
This can be committed against a person or property. A victim does not have to be a member of the group at which the hostility is targeted. In fact, anyone could be a victim of a hate crime.
Hate Incidents can feel like crimes to those who suffer them and often escalate to crimes or tension in a community.
For this reason the police are concerned about incidents and you can use this site to report non-crime hate incidents.
The police can only prosecute when the law is broken but can work with partners to try and prevent any escalation in seriousness.
Our expertise is delivering the April Acts of Remembrance, National Hate Crime Awareness Week and our annual H.O.P.E. Campaign.
The focus of our work is bring local authorities, key partners and communities affected by hate crime together to tackle hate crime.
We don't have the capacity to take on individual case work so we refer victims of hate crime to existing advice and support services where possible.
In an emergency you should call the police by dialling 999, dial 101 if it is not an emergency.
If you don't want to speak to the police then you could contact your local council (some but not all have officers who can deal with hate crime).
Or you could contact a third party advice and support organisation.
Hate crimes and incidents hurt; they can be confusing and frightening.
By reporting them when they happen to you, you may be able to prevent these incidents from happening to others.
You will also help the police understand the extent of hate crime in your local area so they can better respond to it.
Reporting makes a difference - to you, your friends, and your life.
The national week takes place between the second and third Saturday in October each year.
The aim of the week is to encourage local authorities, key partners and communities affected by hate crime to work together to tackle local hate crime.
Yes - the national week covers all forms of hate crime. We believe hate crime is unacceptable in all its forms and that we can prevent it by working together.
Yes you can use the #NationalHCAW logo as long as your events and activities support the spirit of the national week.
Please send us samples of any artwork you produce for our archive.
