Hillcrest Church members joined others in the Pleasant Hill community on November 18, 2023, to show that Pleasant Hill stands United Against Hate. As part of United Against Hate Week (November 12-18, 2023) the City’s Diversity Commission held a Unity Walk to show Pleasant Hill’s commitment to inclusion, equity, and diversity.
United Against Hate Week was 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 began in front of Pleasant Hill City Hall and followed a 1.5 mile loop ending back at City Hall.
“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.”
