EHRC May 14 Meeting to Discuss the Rise of Hate Crimes

While differences of perspective are a part of human nature, hate crimes and violence are not. The rise of hate crimes in Culver City has been a growing concern for many over the last year.  A special meeting of the Equity and Human Rights Committee will take place via video conference on Friday, May 14, 2021 at 6:00 PM.

The sole agenda item, “a presentation and discussion on the rise of hate crimes and target groups.” If you have been the victim of a hate crime and have hesitation about reporting or asking for help, this is a venue that is available for support.

To combat the spread of COVID-19, the City proclaimed a local emergency on March 14, 2020 and issued subsequent public orders beginning March 16, 2020. In accordance with such orders, in-person meetings have been discontinued until further notice.
