L.A. County Departments Unite Against Hate
Together we stand firmly against the increasing acts of hate toward members of the Asian American and Pacific Islander communities in our county and across the nation. We remain fully committed to supporting L.A. County’s antiracist and anti-hate agenda, reducing the stigma around workers in the massage industry, and supporting the recovery of those who have been emotionally impacted by recent devastating events. We will continue to work together with clarity of purpose to support survivors of hate with wraparound services in a culturally and linguistically sensitive manner. Below are a host of resources available including emotional support.
How to Seek Help:
If you have witnessed or experienced a hate crime, please report it to the County’s Hate Crime Reporting portal here, or by calling 211.

Experiencing, witnessing or learning about acts of hate can be traumatizing and trigger a variety of negative reactions.
