United Against Hate Week - November 11 - 18, 2018 — banner

United Against Hate Week

November 11 - 18, 2018

Various Events/Locations

United Against Hate was created by civic leaders in direct response to the sharp rise in expressions of hate in our communities. We want to empower local residents to take action in their local communities and alter the course of this growing intolerance.

United Against Hate Week (Nov. 11-18, 2018) is a call for local civic action by people in every Bay Area community to stop the hate and implicit biases that are a dangerous threat to the safety and civility of our neighborhoods, towns and cities. We believe that when cities and their residents work together against hate, we can restore respect and civil discourse, embrace the strength of diversity and build inclusive and equitable communities for all.

If you believe that too, then sign up to take action. You can post signs, host events, share stories, attend rallies, and connect with schools and neighborhood civic institutions. Nothing is too small, because working united in each community is what will defeat hate in all communities.

Get involved: View planned events around the country and find out how your town might participate at the official United Against Hate Week website.

Fremont, CA: Free "Waking in Oak Creek" Screening

Saturday, November 10, 2018

1:30 PM

Niles Discovery Church, 36600 Niles Canyon Road, Fremont, CA (map)

The documentary Waking In Oak Creek profiles a suburban town rocked by hate after six worshippers at the Sikh Temple of Wisconsin are killed by a white supremacist. In the year following the attack, the mayor and police chief lead the community as they forge new bonds with their Sikh neighbors. Young temple members and a police lieutenant, shot 17 times in the attack, inspire thousands to gather for events and honor the victims. After one of the deadliest hate crime attacks in recent U.S. history, the film highlights a community and law enforcement working together to overcome tragedy, stand up to hate, and create a safe town for all.
