Doreen Lawrence OBE, Founder of the Stephen Lawrence Charitable Trust, said, "Our aim is to build hope for the future. Justice for Stephen is about all of us, every one of us, in society having justice. I want young people to feel inspired, be confident and have hope in their own future. There have been a further 106 racist murders since Stephen was killed 20 years ago and there are still too many young people who do not have a sense of hope. We work every day to empower youth and we're so proud that the music industry is joining us in reaching out to change the lives of young people."
