Doreen Lawrence made President of Unite Against Fascism.
UAF is very proud to announce that Doreen Lawrence has agreed to become our honorary president.
Doreen is the mother of Stephen Lawrence, who was murdered by racists in 1993.
The vicious murder took place in Eltham, south east London, near to the Welling headquarters of the Nazi British National Party.
Doreen has campaigned tirelessly for justice in the years since Stephen’s death. Gary Dobson and David Norris were finally convicted of his murder in January this year.
She also set up the Stephen Lawrence Charitable Trust to boost opportunities for disadvantaged young people from a diverse range of backgrounds.
In 2003 Doreen was awarded an OBE for services to community relations.
