United Against Hate Week (November 14-20, 2021) is a call to action for local civic engagement to combat hate and implicit biases that pose a serious threat to the safety and decency of our communities.

Dr. Debra Duardo, Superintendent of the Los Angeles County Office of Education, and Maria Salinas, Executive Director of the Los Angeles Chamber of Commerce, are the co-chairs of LA vs Hate United Against Hate Week.

In order to establish healthy and resilient communities, it is critical to promote inclusion and equity. This week of action is intended to promote awareness among all county residents and students about the perils of hate and the importance of respect and civil conversation. This week, we’ll look at ways that residents may strengthen their ties with civic leaders, companies, and schools in order to create a more inclusive and tolerant Los Angeles.
