What Happened at the United Against Hate Week (UAHW) Kickoff in Berkeley

As a deeply moving manifestation of solidarity and fortitude, on November 13, 2023, Berkeley, California, together with Not In Our Town, LA versus Hate, and the State of California Civil Rights Department (CRD) hosted the launch event for the sixth annual UAHW. Held at the historic Martin Luther King Jr. Civic Center Park, this event brought together government officials and community leaders along with advocacy groups in an effort to allow people to understand what discrimination is and why cross-cultural tolerance should be promoted among California residents so they will take action to stop a sharp increase of hate crimes and incidents around their communities.

A YouTube video records the ceremony, highlighting how an entire community comes together to respond to a grave concern. As reported by journalist Antonio Ray Harvey in his post regarding the event, the occasion was aimed at promoting collective actions, reflecting on history, and building stronger communities for all.
