LA vs Hate
United Against Hate Week
November 13 – November 19
For the third year, LA vs Hate is hosting United Against Hate week. The LA vs Hate program has been led by the LA County Commission on Human Relations since 2019 to address hate in LA communities. LA vs Hate represents a diverse group of business and community partners united in creating a society where all are welcomed and respected.
The United Against Hate movement began in the Bay Area and was created by civic leaders in direct response to a rise of hate in communities. Leaders wanted to empower residents to take action in their local communities. Since it began, United Against Hate Week has spread to over 200+ communities throughout California and across the US.
The goal is to promote respect and inclusion during the week by having community members display anti-hate messaging in their businesses, homes, and schools; promote LA vs Hate United Against Hate Week on digital platforms; and by holding events that inspire inclusivity and working together.
We’ve partnered with LA vs Hate on United Against Hate, an activity booklet recommended for ages 8 and older, which explores connecting with your culture and the culture around you through activities, videos on the Explore Justice website, and books in our catalog.
A limited supply of United Against Hate activity booklets are available at all library locations.
