AAPI Statement of Support - 03/18/213/18/2021
Dear Cleveland Families,
Following the terrible news coming out of Georgia, the Cleveland staff and community mourn this loss of life and we denounce these acts of violence. We stand in solidarity with the Asian, Asian American and Pacific Islander communities who continue to experience increased acts of racism. We know these events are traumatizing and we want to offer support to our students.
Cleveland is offering a safe space where students can drop in for support or just to check in with a counselor or social worker.
Friday, March 19th from 1:00-2:00. https://meet.google.com/cdt-srhy-dbj
Please see the link below to a slideshow of resources to better understand the history, impact and recent increase in anti-asian hate crimes and how to interrupt them.
