This investment—the passage of an $165.5 million API Equity Budget in 2021—helped establish the state’s Stop the Hate Program. An important step toward equity for all Californians, Stop the Hate consists of grassroot organizations working collectively to provide direct services to victims of hate and their families, and prevention and intervention services to tackle hate in our communities.
