NADA stands in solidarity with the AAPI community to #StopAsianHate. We send our love and support to our AAPI members.
The NADA protocol is a tool of community wellness and liberation, which is a practice rooted in traditional East Asian lineages. We are indebted to the wisdom and knowledge of Asian practitioners and communities who made this medicine possible and continue to shape our collective NADA community. Our hearts are broken, and know that we are with you in this moment of tremendous grief.
The domestic terrorist attack in Atlanta, part of a growing wave of anti-Asian violence, is rooted in the United States’ long history of white supremacy and gender-based violence.
We must all do our part in transforming our communities and society.
We call on our allies, friends, and colleagues to both take care in this time and to find their right action in supporting communities of color and BIPOC-led efforts to challenge white supremacy and systemic racism. All -isms are health matters.
Are you aware of or taking part of any NADA community response in Atlanta? Or your own community? Get in touch.
