30 years on – Stephen Lawrence Day

22 April 2023

Stephen Lawrence Day was first celebrated in 2019 and takes place annually on 22 April, the date of Stephen’s death. The Day is marked officially in the British calendar as a celebration of Stephen’s life and legacy.

This year on 22 April 2023, the 30th anniversary of Stephen’s death, our goal is to ensure that the next 30 years look different from the last.

Meaningful change starts with tangible actions. If we each commit to taking one action on Stephen Lawrence Day that will positively impact the lives of young people from marginalised backgrounds, together we can honour Stephen’s life and legacy, and build a fairer, kinder and more equitable society in his name #StephenLawrenceDayPledge
