Not in Our Town is proud to partner with cities around California (and now, the entire country!) for United Against Hate Week, an unprecedented collaboration of municipalities, school districts and civic organizations to raise awareness and spark action to stop hate and build inclusion.
About United Against Hate Week
United Against Hate Week (Nov. 13-19, 2022) is a call for seven days of local civic action by people in every community to stop the hate and implicit biases that are a dangerous threat to the safety and civility of our neighborhoods, towns and cities.
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.
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.
Join us! 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.
