Letter: National hate crime awareness week

Date published: 19 February 2018

Dear Editor,

National Hate Crime Awareness Week takes place between the 2nd to 3rd Saturday in October:

This national week started in 2012 and evolved out of the London Vigils Against Hate Crime which began in 2009.

The event referred to in this letter published on your site - refers to the Greater Manchester Hate Crime Awareness Week which take place in February:

This is a North West regional event - it is not a national event.
