Chalk art against hate
In honor of United Against Hate Week, Manhattan Beach is hosting a sidewalk chalk event on Sunday, Nov. 14 from 10 a.m. to noon at Polliwog Park. Kids, families, city and school leaders will draw messages of love and support in solidarity against all forms of hate.
“I have partnered with the non-profit South Bay Cares to plan an event that will span Manhattan Beach, Hermosa Beach and Redondo Beach,” said organizer Diana Skaar. “Each city will have a local artist who has created a specific design for their city. For Manhattan Beach, the chalk design will be a message especially meaningful to middle schoolers, who are becoming more aware of their own identities, serving as a visual symbol of support if they are experiencing identity-based bullying. We are also reminding community members that they can confidentially report hate incidents online or call 211.” ER
