Los Angeles is one of the most diverse regions in the world –– it’s home to hundreds of different cultures with unique languages, customs, and histories. That’s what makes this place so special, and we’re very proud to help connect these communities to the people and places that matter most.
Everyone deserves to ride Metro safely and comfortably. And everyone deserves to be treated with respect. We know, however, that we can’t take this for granted. Reported hate crimes –– that is, crimes motivated by racial, ethnic, religious, or sexual prejudices –– have risen in recent years. That’s why we’re participating in United Against Hate Week, and we’re partnering up with the LA County Commission on Human Rights, LA Civil Rights, CA Civil Rights, LA vs. Hate, USDOJ Community Relations Service, the Japanese American National Museum, and the Chinese American Museum to form an Anti-Hate Collaborative. The goal: stopping hate on our public transportation system.
If you see or experience a hate crime on our system, we want to know about it as soon as possible. Call 2-1-1 or check out the resources available at LAvsHate.org/metro.
