About Hate-Free Together

The History

COVID-19 was a pandemic that required an unprecedented level of collaboration and contribution between UC Davis, the City of Davis and Yolo County. When Healthy Davis Together and Healthy Yolo Together were born, these award-winning pandemic response projects taught us many lessons about community readiness, response strategies and local investments. A key lesson that continues to resonate is that we are stronger together.

Building upon this great work, the City of Davis, UC Davis, and Yolo County joined forces again in 2022, this time against the rising epidemic of hate. Recent and ongoing incidents in our community have shown continued prejudice and discrimination against groups and individuals due to their race, ethnicity, religion, ability, sexual orientation or other characteristics.

We all have a responsibility to combat this hate.
