San Mateo Stands United Against Hate
We're proud to be participating in the 2019 United Against Hate Week, and have taken the pledge to promote diversity, equity and inclusion. Find out how you can participate, get your own free “San Mateo United Against Hate” poster, join our photo contest, and check out our library’s reading lists!
Started in 2017 in Berkeley, this year’s event runs Nov. 17-23 as a call for local civic action from Bay Area communities to stop hate and implicit biases that threaten the safety and civility of our neighborhoods and cities.
On Oct. 21, 2019, the City Council adopted a resolution joining the United Against Hate Week campaign.
Get your free poster by visiting City Hall, 330 W. 20th Ave., during normal business hours.
Submit a photo of you with your United Against Hate poster, or a picture highlighting how you stand against hate, along with a caption to firstname.lastname@example.org. You’ll have a chance to win a free eco-kit! You'll be featured on our social media channels too!
Rules: photo must have been taken in the City of San Mateo and be submitted by Nov. 30.
Our Library Department has also curated special United Against Hate book lists for pre-readers, K- 3rd grade, adults non-fiction, and adults fiction.
We'll also have special displays on the second and third floors of the Main Library, 55 W. Third Ave., San Mateo.
Staff will also be tabling at the Main Library on Monday, Nov. 18 from 3-5 p.m. where you can get free stickers and chat!
