STEPHEN LAWRENCE DAY FOUNDATON - "A LEGACY OF CHANGE "
"Justice for Stephen is about all of us, every one of us, in society having justice. There are still too many young people who do not have a sense of hope, who just don’t get the chance to live their dreams. I want all our children and young people to feel inspired, be confident and have hope in their own future. We are building hope but there is more to do."
- Baroness Lawrence, Speaking at 20th Anniversay Memorial in 2013
