At APEN, we are adapting quickly to this time of rapid change and uncertainty: raising emergency funds to stabilize our communities, fighting for eviction moratoriums and debt forgiveness, and standing up to the rising tide of anti-Asian racism and violence.
With things changing so quickly, we know that it’s been difficult to stay up to date on what’s happening with the COVID-19 pandemic and access information about the resources we need at this time.
APEN will be sharing a weekly news roundup with timely updates on:
- Local, state, and national COVID-19 decisions that impact our communities
- International news with a focus on how Asian countries are combating COVID-19.
- Resources including material support for people and know-your-rights information
- Highlights from cultural workers responding to the pandemic
If COVID-19 has made anything clear, it’s that we are all connected – across borders, across class boundaries – and that the impacts and duration of this crisis depends on making sure that all of us have what we need to help contain this outbreak, starting with the people facing the greatest risks with the fewest material resources.
We hope that the APEN COVID-19 news roundup helps connect you with the information and resources you need most.
