Community Ministries May Focus

Asian Americans for Equality

For the month of May, the Board of Community Ministries has chosen to focus on supporting an organization within the Asian-America community.  In addition to May being Asian American and Pacific Islander month, we think it is important to stand behind and support these individuals who continue to be subjected to an increased level of hate and violence since the beginning of the pandemic.  This year, we decided to support an organization called Asian Americans for Equality (https://www.aafe.org/) which does many wonderful things within the AAPI community, including providing food, clothing, and financial assistance for those in need; protecting tenant rights within housing developments; and working to keep AAPI individuals safe from hate crimes and violence.  Please consider helping us donate to this wonderful charity and helping our local brothers and sisters from the Asian-American community. 

If you are interested in helping us support this missions, please earmark the funds for this specific purpose so we know how to allocate it.  Remember, the Community Ministries Board will match donations provided by the congregation so we hope to really make an impact for those in need.  For more information, email Adom Crew, adom.crew@gmail.com.
