The first quarterly President Message from Marissa Tirona, GCIR President.
As an organization dedicated to advancing justice and equity for all, we at GCIR are appalled at the insurrection, violence, and rioting we witnessed earlier this week, which were direct consequences of the divisive rhetoric and oppressive policies promulgated by Trump and his enablers over the past four years.
Farewell message from Daranee Petsod, founding president of GCIR.
The historic 2020 U.S. presidential election is over, and the will of the people has prevailed. A record number of people cast their votes, not just for the next president of the United States but also for the kind of country they wish America to be: vibrant, inclusive, welcoming.
2020 has been a year unlike any other in our lifetimes. The fourth consecutive year of escalating policy attacks on immigrants and many other marginalized communities.
