Discover how leading organizations combat hate

In case you missed it, an additional $91.4 million was awarded to more than 180 organizations statewide under the Stop the Hate program, a groundbreaking initiative to serve communities experiencing hate. AAPI Equity Alliance is proud to be the Los Angeles Regional Lead for 42 organizations, some of which are serving the Black community, and, to commemorate Black History Month, we’re uplifting them and their incredible work for the Los Angeles community!

Bridge Builders Foundation is dedicated to building bridges from dreams and aspirations to reality for the youth of the community. From their science program that addresses the gross underrepresentation of minorities and women in STEM to their mentorship program that coaches hundreds of youth on a weekly basis, Bridge Builders Foundation is removing the barriers of race to drastically affect the life trajectories of low-income youth.

Community Coalition (CoCo) trains activists and organizers in order to support power building with Black, brown, indigenous and people of color. Serving South Los Angeles, CoCo galvanizes and leads residents to assert their leadership and voice in groundbreaking campaigns for change including cultivating electoral power and building thriving communities.

Jenesse Center Inc. has been providing domestic violence intervention and prevention programs and services in South Los Angeles for the past 43 years. Their holistic, trauma-informed, culturally responsive approach across five key programs — family wellness, legal services, workforce development, Jeneration J Youth Program, and permanent housing — has restored families impacted by domestic and sexual violence and oppression.

The Community Action League (TCAL) helps low income communities in the Antelope Valley fight for their civil rights. From racial profiling by police to the attacks against youth by the Criminal Justice and Educational system, TCAL empowers communities with the resources needed to achieve health and stability for families, schools, businesses and communities.

Organizations like Bridge Builders Foundation, Community Coalition, Jenesse Center Inc. and The Community Action League are steadfast in their commitment to nurture communities and protect them against hate and violence — beyond the month of February.

We encourage you to learn more, support and get involved in 2024 as these organizations continue to roll out programs and initiatives benefiting all communities of color. Stay tuned for further updates from us and the Stop the Hate cohort!
