United Against Hate Week (Nov. 14-20, 2021) is a call for local civic action 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 Week ("UAHW") emerged from a United Against Hate poster campaign created by Bay Area Cities in response to white supremacist rallies in Berkeley and San Francisco in 2017. The original 13 communities were convened in 2018 by Not In Our Town, a national anti-hate organization and partner in the LA vs Hate campaign, and committed to an annual week of action and awareness.
Since inception, UAHW has spread to over 200+ communities including all of Los Angeles County, faith-based groups, LGBTQ and human rights organizations, and is beginning to take off throughout California and in communities across the U.S.
In response to a recommendation from the City's Diversity Commission, on October 18, 2021, the Pleasant Hill City Council issued a proclamation declaring November 14 through 20, 2021 United Against Hate Week in Pleasant Hill.
