ELS stands in solidarity with the Asian, Asian American and Pacific Islander community. We condemn hate and racism in all forms and support our AAPI colleagues, community and beyond.
The Asian and AAPI community continues to be targeted with hate and violence, with a total to-date of 3,800 reported (and many more unreported) anti-Asian racist incidents, many against women, in the past year due to xenophobic rhetoric during the Covid-19 pandemic.
To help fight for justice and equity, ELS is donating to the Asian Pacific Fund’s Solidarity Fund. The Solidarity Fund will provide grants to organizations working to address persistent anti-Asian racism, including supporting the physical and mental health of survivors, ensuring the safety of seniors, and advocating for racial justice across racial lines.
ELS is committed to social equity, diversity and inclusion. Together, let’s #StopAsianHate and #StopAAPIHate.
