On Wednesday, April 7, 2021 at 5:30 pm, City of Seal Beach leaders will participate in a virtual presentation provided by the Orange County Human Relations Commission regarding the current trends in the county related to hate crimes and how to report a hate crime. There will also be an opportunity for viewers to ask questions.
“After the threatening letter was mailed to an Asian American family in Leisure World, we asked how the City of Seal Beach could create a learning opportunity for our community,” Seal Beach Chief of Police, Philip L. Gonshak said. “We hope increasing awareness will prevent future hate crimes from occurring and empower our residents with knowledge to ensure all crimes are being reported. Let me reiterate that hate directed toward any member of our community is disgusting and will not be tolerated!”
The presentation will be led by Norma López, Executive Director of the Orange County Human Relations Commission, Seal Beach Mayor Joe Kalmick, Seal Beach City Manager Jill Ingram, and Seal Beach Police Chief Philip Gonshak.
The meeting will be livestreamed on the Seal Beach Police Department Facebook page at 5:30pm on Wednesday, April 7, 2021.
