International Day of Hope and Remembrance.

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 eight 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.

 

SOLIDARITY VIGIL

The Brighton & Hove Solidarity Vigil, organised by the Brighton & Hove LGBT Community Safety Forum (LGBT CSF), will be held on Saturday October 14th 2017 near the Old Steine Fountain at 7pm sharp to mark the International Day of Hope and Remembrance.
