#NHCAW stands for National Hate Crime Awareness Week.
The week of action takes place between the second to third Saturday in October each year.
It aims to bring people together, to stand with those affected by hate crime, to remember those we have lost, and support those who need our ongoing support.
We encourage local authorities (Police and Councils) to work alongside key partners, and communities affected by hate crime to tackle local hate crime issues.
We spread a message of H.O.P.E.
Hate crime awareness - running awareness events to increase public knowledge.
Operational responses to hate crime - encouraging people to think about how they would respond if hate crime happened to someone they know.
Preventing hate crime where possible.
Empowering communities to report hate crime and work together.

17-24-30 No To Hate Crime Campaign was founded in March 2009 by Mark Healey and Ryan Parkins to mark the 10th anniversary of three London Nail Bomb attacks on Brixton, Brick Lane and Soho.
Later the same year, Ian Baynham a gay man was homophobically assaulted in Trafalgar Square. The attack shook London. After four weeks in a coma, Ian died from the injuries he sustained.
In October 2009, 17-24-30 organised the first London Vigil Against Hate Crime to stand up for Ian and all those affected by hate crime, stating there is #NoPlaceForHate in London.
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 #NHCAW.
#NHCAW is organised by 17-24-30 in partnership with Stop Hate UK.
