End Hate Against the Asian American Community
Since the onset of the pandemic and the recent disgraceful acts of violence in Atlanta, the Asian American Pacific Islander (AAPI) population has seen a rise in hate and discrimination against their historically marginalized community. At LMM, we do not stand for hate and discrimination of any kind and we must do all we can to serve as an ally and support the AAPI community.
Here are some resources on how you can contribute to ending hate and discrimination against the AAPI community:
MetroHealth Uses Johnson & Johnson to Vaccinate Homeless Population
While limited quantities of the single-dose Johnson & Johnson vaccine have made it to Cleveland, MetroHealth has made great use of the 300 J&J shots they have received thus far. MetroHealth has prioritized vaccinating individuals experiencing homelessness with all 300 of the Johnson & Johnson vaccines they have acquired. We appreciate MetroHealth for their partnership and providing healthcare for those who are vulnerable in our community.
More Relief is On the Way
