During the COVID-19 pandemic, racism towards the Asian American Community  has only increased. Now more than ever, it is crucial that we come together to stand up against social injustices such as this and show our support for these communities.

As COVID-19 cases continue to rise, we must acknowledge the direct impact on Chicago’s over 40 cultural heritage centers, museums, and historical societies. The long term financial stability of these important community-based organizations is in question. Many are still providing resources to their communities such as elder care and food relief. Others are working diligently to engage their constituents who are staying home. Continued engagement with their community is not only important to the stability of these organizations but now more than ever Chicagoans need to be uplifted by cultural enrichment and immersed in an ethos of mutual respect.
