Our communities were hit hard this past year. Southeast Asian American and other low-income communities felt the brunt of the COVID-19 pandemic, which exacerbated already existing disparities. For many, this 45th year of the SEAA journey was about survival. It was about making sure that our loved ones were as safe as possible as they worked to make sure there was food on the table, that our children were continuing their education despite technological and language barriers, that our elders were given culturally appropriate health care—and that we were there to make it happen in the absence of support at the local, state, or federal levels.
With your generous contribution, SEARAC is committed to amplifying your stories, the Southeast Asian American experience that is woven into the tapestry of our beautifully diverse America, in the mainstream media, in the offices of policymakers, and in the halls of Congress.
Through your support, we'll fight for our right to keep our families united, our right to be seen through data, and our right to heal through culturally appropriate health and mental health care.
Through your support, we'll build community power with partners on the ground to ensure that those impacted are centered in our work.
Through your support, we'll connect and activate the next generation of passionate advocates, who will grow, carry, and lead our movement in the years ahead.
Together, we can make a powerful difference in 2021 and beyond.
