“I do not know how to love God except by loving the poor. I do not know how to serve God except by serving the poor.... we must, in this neighborhood, on this street, in this parish, regain a sense of community which is the basis for peace in the world.” - Dorothy Day

Dorothy Day was a social Catholic activist and American journalist. She helped establish the Catholic Worker Movement, a pacifist movement that promotes activism for the poor and homeless. During Women's History Month, we honor and celebrate the accomplishments of all women, both great and small.

“Let the globe, if nothing else, say this is true:
That even as we grieved, we grew
That even as we hurt, we hoped
That even as we tired, we tried
That we'll forever be tied together victorious
Not because we will never again know defeat
but because we will never again sow division”
- Amanda Gorman, "The Hill We Climb"

Happy Year of the Ox to all! OACC envisions vibrant, healthy, and just communities where diverse APIA identities and heritage are affirmed and celebrated. Although we could not hold a celebration in-person this year, this gave us the opportunity to commit to our values in a thoughtful way for cross-cultural exchange, intergenerational dialogue, and building community.

In a few hours, we will launch our kick-off Lunar New Year video and virtual community night market. All week long (and beyond), we hope you engage with us and support AAPI-owned and AAPI-ally businesses, artists, and creatives who are our beloved community.
