Cheers to community resilience in 2021

Dear friend,

As we have all witnessed and deeply felt the ways in which last year’s challenges have persisted and transformed, 2021 has undoubtedly demanded stamina and steadfastness from our communities. The COVID-19 pandemic has worn on, exacerbating inequities in housing, economic stability, access to healthcare and safe working environments, and more. The pandemic-driven tide of violence targeting AAPI communities has continued to surge, as we have now collected over 10,000 reports of anti-AAPI hate incidents through our Stop AAPI Hate reporting platform. Many of us face these enduring trials with fatigue.
