Trent building to turn orange for Stephen Lawrence Day 2023

April 17th, 2023

The university’s Trent Building will light up in orange on Friday 21 and Saturday 22 April 2023 in commemoration of the death of Stephen Lawrence.

Saturday 22 April commemorates the life of Stephen, a young Black British teenager who in 1993 was murdered in a racist attack in London.

The Stephen Lawrence Foundation works to continue to influence attitudes towards race; and the journey to restore trust and eliminate racism across Britain is ongoing. #ALegacyofchange

The Foundation will be illuminating several key landmarks in orange on Friday, including the London Eye, National Maritime Museum and the Cutty Sark.

The University of Nottingham will be joining civic partners Nottingham Trent University (Newton Arkwright building) and Nottingham City Council (Council House) in the commemoration event.

All colleagues and students are encouraged to engage in the light up and commit to taking tangible actions to ensure that the next 30 years look different to the last. Get involved on social media and make your #StephenLawrenceDayPledge.
