As our nation continues its struggle with the pain of racism and murder, we are saddened and angered by the rise in intolerance, bigotry, violence, and hate crimes towards the Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) community during the COVID-19 pandemic. We recognize that the tragedy in Atlanta weighs heavily on the minds and bodies of many of us, and stand alongside the AAPI community in Atlanta, in North Carolina, and in the rest of the country.
Resources for Resilience™ will carry on in our efforts to prevent and mitigate the effects of toxic stress and adversity in our world through connection. For those seeking ways to join us in our efforts, please consider adding your name to our mailing list to receive information about upcoming opportunities to connect, including our Listening Circles for Communities of Color and their allies that will take place in the coming weeks. We must all work to stop AAPI hate.
