#USvsHate at UC San Diego


#USvsHate (“us versus hate”) is a national anti-hate messaging project that embraces inclusion and justice for all in our diverse schools and society. #USvsHate messages insist publicly that all people are equally valuable. In #USvsHate, students are invited to create public anti-hate messages in any media for their school communities. 

Piloted by educators and students in San Diego and led by UC San Diego’s CREATE, #USvsHate is now a national project of Teaching Tolerance of the Southern Poverty Law Center.

Our #USvsHate UC San Diego challenge is the country’s first higher education version.

We amplify undergraduate and graduate student voices for our campus audience and beyond.

#USvsHate at UC San Diego is a collaborative campus-wide initiative bridging academic departments, campus community centers, research, and student life. 

  • Human Developmental Sciences houses #USvsHate within the undergraduate “Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion Major/Minor Specialization” and is led by Mariko Cavey.
  • The Center for Research in Educational Equity, Assessment, and Teaching Excellence (CREATE) represents the research home of #USvsHate and is led by Education Studies Professor and CREATE Director Mica Pollock. 
  • As a division of the Vice Chancellor’s Office for Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion, the Cross Cultural Center supports #USvsHate as a campus hub for EDI projects and is led by Edwina Welch.

The UC San Diego pilot of #USvsHate was funded by a VOICES grant from the UC Center on Free Speech and Civic Engagement, with support from VC-EDI’s Triton Community Initiative.
