LAPD recently reported total hate crimes increased 10.3% in 2019 compared to the prior year. That number has risen 40% over the last four years.

“Hate crimes continue to rise across our country, but today, Los Angeles is taking a stand,” Councilman David Ryu said. “We will not give in to fear or cynicism. We will not accept this as the new normal.”
