AAPI Equity Alliance Leads 42 Community Partners to Stop the Hate in California

AAPI Equity Alliance (AAPI Equity) is supporting 42 organizations in the Los Angeles County region who received $24 million over two years, as part of the larger statewide grant of $91.4 million, to carry out this critical work. This new investment follows $44.6 million previously provided for anti-hate programs.

“California’s renewal of the Stop the Hate funding and its expansion beyond the Asian American community to include Black, Latino, LGBTQIA+, and Pacific Islander communities is a long overdue investment in our state’s diverse communities,” said Manjusha P. Kulkarni, executive director of AAPI Equity. “This grant ensures that we can continue to respond effectively to the needs of historically underserved populations and end hate, while building cross-community solidarity and promoting empathy across the diverse region of Los Angeles.”
