(April 18 - June 3, 2020)


Dear NAAAP-OC Community,

I hope this message finds each of you, your family and loved ones doing well, keeping safe, and most importantly, staying healthy. I understand that it has been, is currently, and will be challenging times for us all, but we will get through this Covid-19 situation together; defeating it, coming out of it stronger and more united. I would like to take this opportunity to thank all of you in our community for heeding the advice and recommendations of our government officials and medical professionals. It may be difficult, but we all know that it is the right thing to do. I would like to especially thank those of you who are in the front lines, those in the medical and essential fields; your efforts, commitment, and sacrifice are extremely appreciated and we are forever grateful.

I want to reassure you that we at NAAAP-OC continue to serve as a resource for our community, so please do not hesitate to contact us at [email protected] if you would like to be connected for assistance or be of assistance. We are diligently working with other local API communities on a relief initiative, in which each one of you can contribute and make a difference. Details for the initiative will be released soon. I also wish to encourage each of you to make small, yet impactful difference, simply by checking in on your family members, friends, and neighbors; and just being present.

On behalf of the NAAAP-OC Leadership Team, I am confident that it is just a matter of time until we meet again. Better days are ahead, and we will continue to endure, as we have in the past through many difficult times. For now, stay healthy, stay safe, please take care, and take care of each other.
