Community Health Resource Center (CHRC) recognizes we must play a more active role than we have in the past to address the community health crisis that is racially-motivated violence and hate crimes. Nationwide attention to these attacks along with the recent increase in anti-AAPI hate crimes in the Bay Area in particular, have impacted the safety and mental wellbeing of our community. CHRC is united with all of our community members and organizations who are against violence and discrimination based on age, sex, race, religion, (dis)ability, gender, ethnicity, sexual orientation, and socioeconomic status.
CHRC will invest time and energy toward enriching our provider team through diversity and sensitivity trainings, and ensuring an atmosphere of inclusion for our client community, staff and partners. We are committed to providing emotional and physical health support through our programs such as health education and individual counseling as well as connecting people to additional resources in order do our part in fighting hate and exclusion. We will also continue to speak up against acts of intolerance in our communities and actively engage in the work to heal the wounds of those impacted.
