The first quarterly President Message from Marissa Tirona, GCIR President.
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.
A pledge from California philanthropic organizations:
The COVID–19 public health and economic crisis and the murders of Black Americans by police, have laid bare the deep inequities across our state. We need bold steps to ensure a future based on economic inclusion, racial equity, and compassionate humanity.
Giving Compass and National Center for Family Philanthropy (NCFP) are working together to bring you the most comprehensive list of vetted response and relief funds.
AHRI for Justice (AHRI) and Viet Rainbow of Orange County (VROC) recognize that our communities have been greatly impacted by COVID-19. For many in our communities, COVID-19 is no longer just a public health crisis, but a humanitarian crisis on many levels.
In the face of this unprecedented public health and economic crisis, we have redoubled our commitment to realizing our vision of a just and equitable society in which everyone thrives, no matter where they were born.
