LA vs Hate

LA vs Hate is a community-centered program designed to support all residents of Los Angeles County. Led by the Human Relations Commission, LA vs Hate partners with community partners from all five County districts, representing a diverse coalition of voices committed to ending hate.

The goals of the campaign are as follows:

  • Address the normalization of hate and inspire people to stand up to it
  • Build understanding about what constitutes a hate act and how to report it
  • Support individuals and communities as they heal from the trauma of hate

By tracking and reporting hate we can ensure that resources are allocated appropriately, that those targeted by hate receive the support they need, that offenders are held accountable, and that together, we can build respectful and resilient communities.

We’ve partnered with LA vs Hate on Summer of Healing, an activity booklet recommended for ages 14 and older, which explores a gardening activity, healing activity, design activity, and books in our catalog. A limited supply of Summer of Healing activity booklets are available at all library locations.
