“We want to inspire children to dream freely without barriers”
In commemoration of Stephen Lawrence’s life. Stephen Lawrence Day is celebrated every year on 22 April.
2021, in particular, it is a chance to show the small changes we can all do make a difference. At NIROMP we will share in both commemoration and a celebration of Stephen’s life.
We will continue to promote anti-racism and our call for a better life for all through the ending of inequality, inequity, systemic racism and injustice.
Community matters Now More Than Ever
Stephen Lawrence Day is about the part we can all play in creating a better society; we want a society that treats everyone with fairness and respect, a society in which everyone can flourish.
Getting involved in Stephen Lawrence Day is a chance to be part of a national conversation and show your commitment to creating a fairer society in which everyone has the opportunity to live their best life.
MAKE A DIFFERENCE
#ChallengeAccepted Do something simple to help others and pass it on! We are setting three different kinds of challenges: do good (a simple act of kindness to help others in your community); get creative (express what living your best life looks like for you through your chosen artform); or share the learning (find out about Stephen’s story and share it). Choose the challenge that suits you, or, if you’re feeling super ambitious choose all three!
