LA vs Hate.

Concerned about the recent rise of anti-Semitism and hate speech, and after racist remarks involving Los Angeles city leaders, communities and activists around Los Angeles engaged in a week of coordinated activities as part of the annual event “United Against Hate.” Through this campaign to “report and resist hate,” organizers are raising awareness on hate incidents and crimes.

Guest: Robin Toma, Executive Director, Los Angeles County Commission on Human Relations, Los Angeles, CA.

Bass: LA’s First Female Mayor. Congresswoman Karen Bass won the Los Angeles mayor’s race, making history as the first woman elected to lead the nation’s second-largest city. She defeated a billionaire who used his personal fortune to fund his campaign. What are the takeaways of this highly-contested race? What’s the meaning of Bass victory? What changes are expected in areas such as crime and homelessness?

Guest: Dr. Raul Hinojosa, UCLA, Los Angeles, CA.

Midterms and Xenophobic Ads. Experts reported that a number of extremist conservative candidates campaigned in the recent midterm elections using hateful narratives and white nationalist talking points. They point out that while the nativist card didn’t deliver political results, it continues being used by high-profile elected officials.

Guest: Enrique Davis-Mazlum, LUCHA Blue Campaign Director, LUCHA – Living United for Change in Arizona, Phoenix, AZ.
