International Day of Hope and Remembrance for those affected by Hate Crime #IDOHAR
The first International Day of Hope and Remembrance was launched at the London Vigil against Hate Crime which took place on the 30th October 2009 after the death of Ian Baynham who was homophobically abused and beaten in London.
Over the past seven years the third Saturday of October has been established as a day when people around the globe organise solidarity vigils and events to show support to those who have been affected by Hate Crime.
The 8th International Day of Hope and Remembrance will take place on Saturday 15th October 2016.
The Brighton & Hove Solidarity Vigil, organised by the Brighton & Hove Community Safety Forum (LGBT CSF), will be held on Saturday October 15th 2016 near
the Old Steine fountain at 6.30pm sharp.
