We at the EAP are grieved and concerned that our Asian, Asian American and Pacific Islander colleagues specifically and the larger BIPOC community continue to suffer from ongoing violence, xenophobia, hate crimes, microaggressions, stereotyping, and racist jokes. We as a department extend our hand and support to say you don’t stand alone. As counselors we are dedicated to our continued learning and unlearning, to speaking up against the violence no matter how subtle it is, and to providing therapeutic spaces to support healing from racial trauma. We are committed to working for the safety and protection of the AAPI and BIPOC communities. As the EAP, we are here, listening and continuing to work to be responsive in collective care.
EAP would like to acknowledge that we are meeting on the Indigenous lands of Turtle Island, the ancestral name for what now is called North America. Moreover, EAP would like to acknowledge the Alabama-Coushatta, Caddo, Carrizo/Comecrudo, Coahuiltecan, Comanche, Kickapoo, Lipan Apache, Tonkawa and Ysleta Del Sur Pueblo, and all the American Indian and Indigenous Peoples and communities who have been or have become a part of these lands and territories in Texas.
