PLEASANT HILL, CA (Nov. 1, 2023) — The Pleasant Hill community is invited to join together November 18, 2023, to show that the city stands United Against Hate. As part of United Against Hate Week (November 12-18, 2023) the City’s Diversity Commission will hold a Unity Walk to show Pleasant Hill’s commitment to inclusion, equity, and diversity.

United Against Hate Week is a call for seven days of local civic action by people in every community to stop the hate and biases affecting the safety and civility of our neighborhoods.

The Unity Walk is the culmination of the UAH Week in the City of Pleasant Hill. Participants of all ages are invited to join in the walk and are encouraged to bring friends and family.

The Unity Walk will commence in front of City Hall, 100 Gregory Lane. It will follow a 1.5 mile loop ending back at City Hall. This event provides an excellent opportunity for individuals and families to come together and stand against hatred, discrimination, and prejudice. United Against Hate Week posters will be provided.

Standing together

“In today’s global climate, it is important that we as a community do everything we can to celebrate our diversity and stand together against acts of hate and discrimination,” said Diversity Commission Vice Chair Brianna Shahvar. “By participating in the Unity Walk, we send a powerful message that the city of Pleasant Hill is a community where everyone belongs.”

Pleasant Hill Mayor Tim Flaherty expressed support for the event. He encouraged the community to stand with the City. “I hope you will join me and heed the call to action to help stop the hate that threatens our safety and undermines our society,” said Flaherty.
