As we continue our quest to have courageous
conversations around race and ethnicity within AMCD and beyond we want to
strongly support the timely statement from Richard Yep, President of ACA which
is below. We uphold ACA’s firm and affirming stance and want to share this
quote from Richard Yep:

 

“The
riots at the Capitol only serve to increase the fragility of the overall mental
health of our country—one that is already besieged by a global pandemic, the
fight for racial justice, and the race to address climate change.” As the race
and ethnicity division, we remain undaunted and steadfast in our mission. We
believe in the words of Toni Morrison, “The function of freedom is to free
someone else.” 

 

We have work to do. We hope you will join us as we do the heavy
lifting.

Here are the resources on anxiety discussed below

In solidarity,
