United Against Hate, Culver City Spotlights Art and Poetry

Culver City joins over two hundred communities in recognizing and participating in United Against Hate Week. On November 14, 2022 at 6:30 PM, the City Council will present a Proclamation, participating in a call for local civic action to stop the hate and implicit biases that are a dangerous threat to the safety and civility of our neighborhoods, towns and cities.

There will also be a ‘pop-up’ art installation at the Village Well Coffee and Books, featuring Alexey Steele’s Love My Neighbor series, along with art from CCUSD students. This display will be available from Nov. 16-19 during bookstore hours. The exhibition is a collaboration between the Artist Laureate, Village Well, CCUSD, and Culver City Arts Foundation.

 Funding is made possible by the City’s percent for art program and a grant from the Culver City Arts Foundation, dedicated to supporting the arts in Culver City.

Poet Laureate Emerta Dr. Janet Hoult has written a poem for the occasion- 

United Against Hate

This week needs to become a year

A year to reduce fear

Among all who have been

Subjected to hate and violence


For all humanity regardless of race or gender

Our world has become a blender

Reminding us we need to work together

For we are all neighbors


Let’s make sure that our values are visible

Stand by our neighbors – all our people

In our communities, our countries, our schools

And remind us all to practice the Golden Rule

“Do unto others as you would have them do unto you”
