A Statement of Solidarity


Graphics by Kalaya'an Mendoza, co-founder of Across Frontlines

Dear Community,

We are grateful for the privilege to create spaces and opportunities for Asian Pacific Islander artists and cultural workers. As we have the opportunity to celebrate our art and culture, we stand in solidarity with the lives of Ahmaud Arbery, Breonna Taylor, Tony McDade, George Floyd, along with their families and communities. It is important for our community to recognize the historical violence and injustice inflicted upon black, brown and indigenous communities and call ourselves in to dismantle racist and oppressive systems. While there will always be much more to do, every act of engagement can open up possibilities to create a more just world. As non-black people of color we must take ownership of our participation in working towards anti-racism, in support of Black Lives Matter.

Dear Community,

In light of the rapidly changing circumstances regarding COVID-19 prevention, APICC’s staff and board have been in earnest discussion about the orders and advice coming from local, state, and federal authorities on how best to protect those who could have the worst outcomes from the virus. As of last Friday, March 13, the City & County of San Francisco issued a Public Health Order prohibiting non-essential gatherings of 100 people or more and recommending to cancel meetings of 10 or more people with vulnerable populations until April 30. As of today, an article has also just been released notifying the public of a shelter-in-place order to be in effect in 6 Bay Area counties until April 7.
