Human Dignity Program
The Human Dignity Program demonstrates the City of Long Beach's commitment to embracing and valuing cultural diversity. The Program helps to prevent youth and gang violence, educates the community about cultural awareness and inclusion, responds to hate crimes and tensions before they escalate, mediates inter-cultural conflicts, and promotes community harmony.
City of Long Beach Human Dignity Policy, 1998
The City of Long Beach believes: "everyone should be 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. It is the right of all residents to pursue their daily lives with the knowledge that they will not be threatened with violence or physical harm... The City will vigorously fight criminal activity known as hate crimes with all rexources at its disposal."
