AYR was selected as a grant recipient for the CA vs Hate Campaign launch through the California Civil Rights Department. The campaign launched a hotline for anyone to report hate incidents (this includes bullying at school). The California vs Hate campaign is partnering up with activists and cities across the state for United Against Hate Week (UAHW) this upcoming November 12-18th. UAHW is a statewide coalition of civic leaders and activists working together to empower local residents to take action against hate – with an ultimate goal of building inclusive and equitable communities. It encourages seven days of local civic action by people in every community, including hosting events, sharing stories, attending rallies, connecting with local institutions and more.
Interested in helping out during the week? If you’d like to learn about the actions during UAHW and how you can participate, the California Civil Rights Commission will be hosting a convening this coming Wednesday, September 20th at 4pm PST. Please register here ahead of time.
