Community Partners Against Hate

Created in 2019 and sponsored by the Utah Federation, Community Partners Against Hate (Community Partners), brings together leaders and representatives of diverse communities as well as Salt Lake officials to advocate collectively to increase the reporting of hate crimes and to support one another through incidents of hate. The group also supports one another's communities when targeted by hate.


In 2023, through our Hate Crimes Booklet and our PSA (see below), the group increased awareness about antisemitism and other forms of hatred, as well as worked with school districts when incidents of hate occured at their schools, and collaboratively worked to better educate the public on the importance of reporting incidents and crimes fueled by hate.


For 2024, the Community Partners are planning a series of films and discussions, a youth summit to eradicate hate, and lobbying in favor of the creation of a statewide hotline to report incidents of bias and hate.

Public Service Announcement:

We Are Taking a Stand


To encourage the reporting of incidents of hate and hate crimes, the Community Partners Against Hate created this PSA, co-sponsored by United Jewish Federation of Utah, Salt Lake City Mayor's Office, and Salt Lake Police Department and County District Attorney's Office. Through our partnership, community leaders and public officials, we are working together to ensure that all communities feel safe to report hate incidents and to know they will be taken seriously. 
We are grateful to Salt Lake video director and producer Jordan Oliver ( for donating his time and expertise in creating this PSA.
