– Doreen Lawrence, mother and founder of the Stephen Lawrence Charitable Trust
It is hard to believe that 2013 will mark 20 years since Stephen died.
This time last year we faced the conviction of two of Stephen's killers and the relief I felt then has stayed with me through the extraordinary year that was 2012.
Despite this, our focus has to be on the next 20 years. There is more to be done to get justice for Stephen and to ensure that no other family has to go through what we endured.
One year ago today Doreen Lawrence finally saw two men sentenced for the murder of her son Stephen, almost twenty years after his death. Today, she announces a series of events celebrating his life.
