[ARCHIVED] Join Us in Standing Up Against Hate: United Against Hate Week

United Against Hate

Everyone and every community should have the opportunity to feel safe and live a life free from hate and harassment. 

That’s why this month, we’re joining communities across the nation in United Against Hate week. 

We believe that when cities and their residents work together against hate, we can foster respect and civil discourse, embrace the strength of diversity, and build inclusive and equitable communities for all.

You’re invited to join us in this effort. You can post signs, host events, take a selfie, and share stories. Nothing is too small.

United Against Hate Signs

The City of Gilroy will be providing a limited number of “Gilroy Stands United Against Hate” signs that can be used in photos and hung in your window, cubicle, or doorway.

November 8, 2023, Sign Distribution

Visit us at 5th Street Coffee located in Gilroy’s Historic Downtown at 7501 Monterey Highway on Wednesday, November 8, from 3 PM – 5 PM.

City Hall Sign Distribution

Signs can also be picked up at the Information Desk at Gilroy City Hall located at 7351 Rosanna Street, Monday through Thursday from 8:30 AM – 4:30 PM.

If You Believe You Are the Victim of a Hate Crime, Please Report it to the Police and Ask for Help

Please remember that while we can all work to make our community a more inclusive place, this doesn’t mean that bad things don’t happen.

If you believe you are the victim of a hate crime, please report it to the police and ask for help:

  • Call the police immediately.  In non-emergency situations, call (408) 846-0350.  In an emergency, call 9-1-1.
  • Seek medical attention for injuries.
  • Document the exact words spoken to you by the criminal as soon as practicable.
  • Photograph property damage.
  • Save any evidence which might aid in the apprehension and prosecution of the criminal.

If you learn about a hate crime in your community, show support. Let victims know you care. Surround them with comfort and protection.
