At National CAPACD, we believe true safety for all comes when we #InvestInCommunity.

We are horrified by the continuing acts of violence against members of our Asian American communities across the country, from New York to Oakland’s Chinatown. We stand in solidarity with the survivors, victims, and their families during this challenging moment, when fear accompanies even the most basic daily experiences. We all deserve to live without the threat of violence and to feel safe in our neighborhoods.

True safety for all must come in the form of investment and resources. That’s why we’re joining a national network of Asian American-led or serving organizations, individuals, and allies to call for immediate and deep investments in our communities.

Disrupting and dismantling structural inequities and racism will do much more to make us safe than further criminalization and conflict. These community-centered approaches will help us heal and more genuinely help our neighborhoods and communities become healthier, stronger, and safer. #WeKeepUsSafe

The Bronx-wide coalition co-created The Bronx People’s Platform for NYC using a systemic lens that focuses on addressing the root causes of the inequalities that we see in our communities.

And given who we are as the Bronx, one of the most diverse places on earth, and the unique challenges we face, we want to be clear about our values and principles that are our north star, and direct our focus to make sure that our work is reflective of those most impacted on the ground. Together, we co-created these values and principles.

新年快乐!恭喜发财!身体健康!It's Lunar New Year Day!

We welcome the Year of the Ox 🐮 and await good fortune in the coming year. Those born as an Ox are said to possess great strength and diligence. In the new year, we seek to channel these virtues as we continue our work to empower and engage a growing and diversifying Chinese American community in Greater Chicago.

Though many of us are pained to be physically distant from our loved ones during Lunar New Year, we know we will persevere. Our community has shown great care and support for each other in the past year, and we look forward to

May you have a prosperous and happy new year! 🧧

Secondhand smoke exposure has disproportionately impacted the Black Community.

Secondhand smoke has caused respiratory infections and asthma attacks in children, as well as heart disease and lung cancer in adults.

Let’s take a look at the statistics:
• 55.3% of African American adults ages 20 and older were exposed to secondhand smoke
• 2 in 3 African American children ages 3 to 11 were exposed to secondhand smoke regularly
