The Safe Community Coalition firmly condemns racism, intolerance, and injustice. We stand with those who are speaking out against the systemic racism that has marginalized and oppressed Black people in the United States. And we stand with our Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) community members and unequivocally denounce racism and discrimination of all kinds and condemn all acts of hate. We are committed to ensuring safe spaces and interrupting any experience that would cause pain and trauma as a result of all identity based violence.
Many of us have experienced recent feelings of anger, anxiety, fear, and helplessness that can have a huge impact on mental health. Make sure you take time to look inward and take care of your own mental health and that of those you care about.
If you need to talk with someone, text HOME to 741741 to speak to a crisis counselor with Crisis Text Line or call the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1-800-273-TALK (8255). Or contact PRS CrisisLink by texting CONNECT to 85511. Help is just a text or phone call away.
In the words of our friends at Active Minds (activeminds.org), “an emotionally healthy world is not possible without a just world.” While working to change our world, make sure to take time for your mental health.
