Inspire me

Stephen Lawrence Day is about unity, reflection and action. Through the day, we want young people to be inspired about what they can achieve, to get involved in creating the kind of community they want to live in and to have a strong voice in building a fairer and more inclusive society. It is also about the part we all play in creating a world in which everyone can flourish.

Join us in marking the day

Up and down the UK, schools, community groups, individuals and organisations large and small are getting involved in activities on and around 22 April to mark the day. There are some simple things that everyone can do, from joining in with the conversation on social media and watching our inspirational films, to taking positive action in your own life.
