Dear LEAAP Members,
We hope you and your families are doing well. As more acts of senseless violence are perpetrated against Asian American and Pacific Islanders, we wanted to make sure that we provide support and resources for all of you to continually fight against the racism and bias that still exists in many communities. These horrific events are unacceptable and harmful to the inclusivity we value and promote in LEAAP and MCPS.
Watching these horrible stories unfold on the news is appalling and further perpetuates feelings of fear, frustration, and anger that is incredibly personal to many. Below are resources you may find useful as we stand together in this fight. Please know that we are here to support you. If you need anything, do not hesitate to reach out.

Woks for Washington is a grassroots initiative based in the Washington, DC metro area, focused on supporting Asian restaurants following the rapid decline in business due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
