Our Southeast Asian Youth Power (SEAYP) leadership program has officially begun! Congratulations on this year’s 2023 cohort: UNITY!

Last week the youth met for the first time at Delta College (shoutout to Dr. Ricky, program manager for the campus Pride Center and Empowerment Resource Programs, for hosting the program). The youth named their cohort (UNITY) and created a shared vision statement that will guide their project for the summer.

This week, UNITY did an activity mapping their migration histories and discussed topics like displacement, safety, and belonging. Additionally, UNITY read Thi Bui’s illustrated article to talk about anti-Asian hate violence, connecting the 1989 Cleveland School shooting in Stockton to systemic forms of violence like the detention and deportation of Southeast Asian refugees and immigrants.

We’re excited to see what our SEAYP leaders continue to build together!

What an honor for EMAC to be able to attend and co-sponsor the Inaugural Symposium for the City of Stockton’s Office of Violence Prevention: Transforming Harm Into Healing & Hope today in Stockton!

Congratulations to the Champions of HOPE awardees who are doing powerful and transformative work for our community! The award celebrates individuals who have demonstrated outstanding commitment and dedication to preventing community violence and aims to recognize and honor those who have made a significant impact on the lives of others by tirelessly working to end gun violence and promote safety within their communities and in the lives of others.

We're gearing up for this year's cohort of our 209 Homies Circle!

The 209 Homies Circle provides leadership development, life skills training, and re-entry support for formerly incarcerated and justice-impacted Asian American & Pacific Islander men in collaboration with the City of Stockton’s Office of Violence Prevention (OVP)
