In 2018, 22 April was announced by former Prime Minister Theresa May as National Stephen Lawrence Day to commemorate the anniversary of Stephen’s death.

The Stephen Lawrence Research Centre

The Stephen Lawrence Research Centre, based at De Montfort University, was inspired by the loan of archival materials by Baroness Doreen Lawrence which document the history of the Lawrence family’s fight for justice in the wake of their son’s tragic murder.

The SLRC is a hub of innovative and world-leading research and intends to create inclusive, intergenerational research communities that engage academics, students, alumni, local communities and the public. It aims to drive forward conversations that will shape and influence how we think about race and social justice and create impact on a local, national and global scale.

The Stephen Lawrence Day Foundation

The Stephen Lawrence Day Foundation is the home for everything Stephen Lawrence Day. The foundation was established to create a more equal, inclusive society and cultivate more opportunities for marginalised youth in the UK, centering its work around the 3C’s: Classrooms, Communities and Careers.
