NCAAT’s mission is to support equity and justice for all by fostering community among AAPIs and allies in North Carolina. And we recognize that a very important part of that is the health and well-being of our community members.
In light of the COVID-19 global pandemic, NCAAT wants to make sure our communities are taking care of themselves — physically and mentally — and taking precautions to protect those around them by practicing CDC-recommended habits like washing hands often and avoiding unnecessary physical contact.
On our part, NCAAT has decided to postpone all of our public in-person events indefinitely.
But that doesn’t mean that we won’t be engaging our communities or advocating for equitable access and representation in government and beyond.
Far from it, this will be an opportunity for us to reach beyond our physical boundaries. We’re in the process of moving our trainings, outreach, and events to a virtual format in lieu of in-person events.
It is more crucial than ever to make sure our community voices are heard and not left out of the public discourse. Be on the lookout for volunteer opportunities to help us get in touch with community members who will not have the opportunity for in-person contact for a while.
In the meantime, please be safe and take care. We’ve gathered a collection of resources and ways to help our communities below.
