Dear Fellow Chinese Americans,
America and the world is in a historic crisis. We all hope we as a society can focus our efforts on beating this pandemic. However, politics again, not surprisingly, find its way into this pandemic crisis. Mixing politics with this virus is so harmful to Chinese Americans. We therefore drafted this positive, constructive and non-partisan letter, to be widely endorsed by our community, at the request from so many of you. We hope your organization will join this letter in a community wide effort to support our own community. If you agree with the spirit of it, please help share it with other organizations you know or friends who care. Please let us know your decision no later than Monday 3pm, March 23.
