Help stop Asian hate. As you have likely heard, there have been several incidents across the U.S. and even one attack on a Metro bus last month. The suspect was thankfully arrested but it was still an awful reminder that hate crimes can happen.
To emphasize: all riders are welcome on Metro. We have a zero tolerance policy for harassment and discrimination. Anyone who is a victim of or witness to harassment can message or submit a report to Metro Security with the LA Metro Transit Watch App. Other ways to contact Metro Security include calling 1.888.950.7233 or
online, by calling 2-1-1, or by calling 800.339.6993.the option to receive personalized follow up from a 211 care coordinator. Information can be submitted anonymously
Other ways you can help us build a kinder community:
- Encourage those who experience or witness acts of hate to report an incident. Reporting helps us track these incidents, so that preventative policies and programs can be developed to keep all Angelenos safe.
- Share safety tips with your friends and family on what to do if encountering or witnessing hate.
- Be informed about what is happening and why. The City of LA’s Stop Hate Resource Hub offers links to numerous community organizations and more. LA vs. Hate offers resources to help build community and remind your friends and family of the importance of standing up to hate in our county.
Let’s work together to make Metro and our communities a place that is safe and welcome for everyone.
