United Against Hate

On November 14, United States Attorney Martin Estrada joined the L.A. County Human Relations Commission, L.A. vs. Hate, and community leaders at a press conference at the Kenneth Hahn Hall of Administration to announce the Office’s participation in a first of its kind, anti-hate crime outreach program entitled United Against Hate. The project seeks to directly connect federal, state, and local law enforcement with traditionally marginalized communities in order to build trust and encourage the reporting of hate crimes and hate incidents.



On November 16, the United States Attorney’s Office partnered with the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office for a virtual program called United Against Hate: LGBTQ+ Town Hall. The program covered topics such as the difference between hate crimes and hate incidents, the importance of reporting unlawful acts of hate, and distinguishing unlawful conduct from protected First Amendment activity. The event included remarks by George Gascón, Los Angeles District Attorney, Ari Gutiérrez Arámbula, co-founder and board president emerita of Latino Equality Alliance, and Bamby Salcedo, President/CEO of the TransLatin@ Coalition, and a presentation by Assistant United States Attorney Matthew Barragan of the Office’s Civil Division’s Civil Rights Section.
