Board Grants $450,000 to Battle Hate Crimes

The Los Angeles County’s Board of Supervisors has approved $450,000 in grants to four Los Angeles organizations to battle hate crimes.

Those groups receiving the grants are the Los Angeles Gay and Lesbian Center, the Asian Pacific American Legal Center, the Coalition for Humane Immigrant Rights of Los Angeles and the Youth Empowerment Project of the Martin Luther King Legacy Association.

The grants will run over three years and will give each group the money to pay for a staff person to concentrate on hate crimes.
