   TRIBUTE TO EMILY HIGBY 
Emily Higby
ACRC Co-founder and Chief Kindness Officer

 
When we chose "Courage" as the theme for this month, little did we know how personally it would apply to our lives.

With the passing of our beloved Ms. Emily, ACRC must find the courage to continue the good works and further the vision that compelled Emily and Frida Tju to create ACRC. 

We must find the individual courage to step up and take the initiative.

We must find the courage as her "ragtag group of misfits" to become a formidable force for good in the community.  In truth, she held us all to a high standard and fostered confidence in our commitment to the community. 

It is with that knowledge we steadfastly forge ahead knowing she has taught us well, cemented her legacy, and can forever rest in peace.

 
TAKE COURAGE FOR ALL AMERICANS!
 
ACRC, the Asian Community Resource Center, stands in solidarity with Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders in this time of intolerable attacks.  Let us use "courage" as a rallying cry.

Courage to those who face subtle and not so subtle racism daily.
Courage to those who face unthinkable abuse at the hands of racists hate mongers. 
Courage, to those who are witnesses, to take action and report what they see or hear.

If you are American, no matter who you are, no matter where you are, no matter how old you are, no matter what color you are, no matter what religion you are, no matter what “fill in the blank” you are, now is the time to take courage and speak out loud and clear that racism will not be tolerated!
 
If you have experienced racism or witnessed racist acts (verbal or physical), here are some resources available to you.
Please join ACRC in supporting the AAPI Community.
