Regardless of what views we may have about British imperialism, colonial history and the monarchy, Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II deserves the respect and affection of all British people.
It is the end of an era for Britain and the beginning of another, which we in the British ESEA community can contribute to and help shape.
National Hate Crime Awareness Week
8th - 15th October 2022
Organised by #NationalHCAW
During National Hate Crime Awareness week, #NationalHCAW encourages organisations and individuals to run events to raise awareness and highlight hate crime.
This year, CARG will work closely with #NationalHCAW to highlight racism and hate crime against East and Southeast Asians in the UK. There will be a special ceremony in St Paul Cathedral where a National Candle of Hope and Remembrance is lit and remains in the Cathedral for the duration of the week. This year candles will be lit in memory of victims of hate crime experienced by the East and Southeast Asian communities in the UK.
Please register with Eventbrite for the St Paul Cathedral Lighting Candle Ceremony on Sunday 8th October 17:30 - 18:30 pm
If you are planning any events for the National Hate Crime Awareness or would like to volunteer to help, please register here.
