    In anticipation of the Fall 2022 opening of the Student Social Justice Center, and in response to the ongoing concerns about local hate crimes against members of the Asian American Pacific Island community, as well as continued awareness about incidents of racism and hate crimes within the South Bay area, El Camino College invites the public to join a “CommUnity Walk Against Hate” on campus Sat, March 26, at 10am.

     Unified by the motto, “Hate Has No Home Here,” community members are welcome to join El Camino students, faculty and staff on the steps in front of the Administration Building at the Crenshaw Boulevard campus entrance at 10 a.m. for a one-mile walk around campus to show public support for diversity, tolerance, and human dignity.

     After the walk, a free self-defense class for senior citizens will take place in the South Gym at 12pm.  

    Walk begins and ends at the Administration Building steps (Crenshaw Blvd. campus entrance). College officials, students and community members will be available to speak to the media.
