The Consulate General of Israel to the Pacific Southwest, Korean American Federation of Los Angeles (KAFLA), and Artists 4 Israel unveiled their mural celebrating diversity, tolerance and inclusion in solidarity against hate on Aug. 23. The mural was painted on the KAFLA building wall in Koreatown by mural artist Andrew Hem. Los Angeles City Council Members Mark Ridley-Thomas and Nithya Raman also spoke at the inauguration; both of them vowing to continue their efforts to stop any form of hate, bigotry and violence. The Consulate General of Israel to the Pacific Southwest, KAFLA, and Artists 4 Israel joined efforts to create this mural in response to the unprecedented rise in anti-Asian hate, anti-Israel hate and Anti-Semitism. The City of Los Angeles has seen a significant uptick in hate crimes in 2021.

“This partnership with the Korean American Federation of Los Angeles and Artists 4 Israel symbolizes inter-community unity and that we all stand together to combat any form of hate and discrimination,” said Consul General of Israel to the Pacific Southwest Dr. Hillel Newman. “Art is a natural and fitting celebration to combat any form of bias and this mural speaks to these issues.”
