With hate crimes on the rise across California, local and state leaders are asking communities to stand up against hate.

United Against Hate Week, which is happening this week, started at Civic Center Park in Berkeley after white supremacy rallies. Years later, local and state leaders say the call to action is only growing with hate crimes mounting.

... "We need to send a message that there are many more of us who have a message of love and of peace than of the fringes who are focused on hate," Assemblymember Phil Ting said.
