Stephen Lawrence was loved by his friends and family and dreamed of becoming an architect. Unfortunately, he was murdered in an unprovoked racist attack, and since then his family have made it their mission to get justice for their son. Ultimately, Gary Dobson and David Norris were found guilty of murdering Stephen, and were delivered life sentences. In 2018, Prime Minister Theresa May announced that there would be a Stephen Lawrence Day held to commemorate Stephen’s Life – celebrated annually on the 22nd of April. The day is centred around creating a society in which everyone can flourish, and the part that each individual plays in creating that society.
