II:  The Coalition stands firm with all our social service and mental health organizations to support individuals and groups who are affected by the racist and discriminatory ideologies and policies of the Trump administration.  In the Asian community where the majority of the populations are first and second generation immigrants – many of whom are already marginalized due to language barrier and lack of access to resources, there has been an increased sense of fear and anxiety due to the rise of hate crimes and bias attacks, and the recent Executive order on travel ban to several Muslim-populated countries.

As a first step, the Coalition has dedicated a webpage of information for individuals and providers on immigration legal rights and resources, as well as related advocacy groups and activities.We welcome your input to help us update the information especially if it pertains to bilingual and bicultural services in the Asian community (  Click (HERE) for more information.
