Team that assists hate-crime victims seeking volunteers

The City of Long Beach Human Dignity Program is now recruiting volunteers for its 2010-2011 Assistance Team. The program teaches volunteers how to assist victims of hate-crime and bias incidents in Long Beach.
The effort is part of the City’s Human Dignity Program, founded in 1999 to ensure that all residents are treated with courtesy and respect regardless of their racial background, their nation of origin, the religion they practice, their sexual orientation, gender, or disability status.
Residents who are interested in investing in their community by promoting peace and inclusion of all people who live, work, and play in Long Beach are encouraged to participate. The training will consist of 17 hours of classroom instruction provided by The California Conference for Equality and Justice. Applications are due Friday, July 30, 2010. For an application, call Danielle Nava at (562) 435-8184 ext. 231 or email
