El Camino College Invites South Bay to CommUnity Walk

March 16, 2022 Torrance, CA

In anticipation of the Fall 2022 opening of the Student Social Justice Center, and in response to the ongoing concerns about local hate crimes against members of the Asian American Pacific Island community, as well as continued awareness about incidents of racism and hate crimes within the South Bay area, El Camino College invites the public to join a “CommUnity Walk Against Hate” on campus Saturday, March 26, at 10 a.m.

Unified by the motto, “Hate Has No Home Here,” community members are welcome to join El Camino students, faculty and staff on the steps in front of the Administration Building at the Crenshaw Boulevard campus entrance for a one-mile walk around campus to show public support for diversity, tolerance, and human dignity.

After the walk, a free self-defense class for senior citizens (and anyone else) will take place at noon in the South Gym.   

“This event solidifies our firm and collective stance that racist rhetoric, criminal behavior or other acts of intolerance against anyone, in any form, is not accepted here at El Camino,” said El Camino College Superintendent/President Brenda Thames. “We welcome all members of the community to join us in taking a stand against racism and discrimination.”

Per college guidelines, masks are suggested outdoors wherever social distancing cannot be maintained. Campus parking is free for this event; no permit required. El Camino College is located at 16007 Crenshaw Boulevard, Torrance.
