United Against Hate

SD United Against Hate Logo


United Against Hate Week (Nov. 12-18, 2023) is a call for local civic action to stop the hate and biases that pose a dangerous threat to the safety and civility of our neighborhoods, towns and cities. The UAH campaign, which emerged from a poster campaign by Bay Area Cities, has spread to over 200+ communities.  San Diego will participate for the second time this year. Inspired by partners throughout California, the San Diego Anti-Hate Coalition and the U.S. Attorney’s Office is working to implement a powerful campaign that will empower local residents and communities to stand against racism and alter the course of growing intolerance. When cities and residents work together against hate, we can restore respect, embrace the strength of diversity and build inclusive and equitable communities for all.
