The City of San Rafael City Council has unanimously approved a resolution declaring the week of November 12 – 18th, 2023 as United Against Hate Week.
United Against Hate Week 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 Week was created by civic leaders in direct response to the sharp rise in expressions of hate in our communities.
The campaign aims to empower local residents to take action in their local communities and alter the course of this growing intolerance. The City of San Rafael stands with fellow California cities in denouncing rising trends of bias and bullying that have plagued our communities in recent years. 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.
