PACE's Stop the Hate programming consists of community-building, prevention, and intervention services focused on community safety and increasing the awareness and reporting of hate crimes/incidents. As the leader of the Security and Awareness as Fundamental Education (SAFE) collaborative, PACE partners with PACE Care and Korean Law Enforcement Organization (KALEO) to provide trainings and informational resources ( for AAPI older adults, community members, and law enforcement.

In the first year of the Stop the Hate program, nearly 1,000 people attended our community safety planning trainings and we reached over 34,000 individuals through digital outreach. This comprehensive programming helps spread awareness about hate crimes/incidents, how to respond to them, and where victims of hate can seek support and reporting services.

"We are absolutely thrilled to announce our renewed funding for the Stop the Hate program.
