There’s nothing new about hate in California. From its earliest days — long before the state’s entry into the union — the territory’s residents have faced prejudice and acts of hate. Throughout history, several communities have experienced heightened levels of this — whether for their race, gender, sexuality, national origin, skin tone, physical capabilities or any other factor.

On Wednesday, May 30, KPCC and ProPublica partner to take a deep and dynamic look at the past and future of hate crimes — and current experiences — in Southern California.

Join KPCC’s Adolfo Guzman-Lopez and ProPublica’s A.C. Thompson for moderated conversations with experts, historians and community members. You’ll also hear first-hand from fellow Angelenos as they share their experiences with hate and prejudice.


Guests to be announced.

Help KPCC, ProPublica and a coalition of organizations create a hate crime database.
