I am proud to introduce the Stop Hate and Respect Everyone (SHARE-Tolerance) Program. This program was conceived and designed by deputy sheriffs who saw the importance of law enforcement taking a leadership role in decrying hate and intolerance, and in the prevention of hate crimes.

The deputies developed the program with the assistance and support of the Museum of Tolerance, Supervisor Michael Antonovich, the Los Angeles County Human Relations Commission, and other organizations. The program was devised to travel into our communities and schools, bringing a dynamic and vital message about tolerance and combating hatred.

Tolerance is a key element of democracy. Hate crimes are assaults on American democracy and the constitution that this country cherishes. We cannot stand by idly and allow purveyors of hate to gain any ground, especially with our youth.
