As a 501(c)3 non-profit, we’re not allowed to endorse or detract fom a political candidate or party. However, we can take a stand on certain issues and acknowledge significant events. First, let us congratulate two new multiracial members of the Senate: Kamala Harris (D-CA, black and Indian), and Tammy Duckworth (D-IL, Thai/Vietnamese and white). Second, we recognize the spate of hate crimes committed in the wake of the recent election and call on our leaders to repudiate these acts of hate. We refuse to accept them as a part of our national character.
