Message from Ascend LA Metro Chapter President

Hi everyone,

I hope that all of you are safe with your loved one. These past weeks have been a difficult week for all of us in the AAPI community as we mourn the loss of the 11 lives in the Monterey Park community here in Los Angeles along with the 7 lives lost in the community of Half Moon Bay in Northern California. This time was supposed to be a time of celebration with the start of the Lunar New Year celebration, but instead my heart goes out to the families and friends of the victims along with the entire community as we try to make sense of these tragic events that have occurred. During these times of incredible sadness, we must remain vigilant to become even more supportive of each other and be resilient in our ability to heal. 

I am thankful for my family, my friends and all of you in the Ascend community. We will work through this together.
