PRESS RELEASES

On March 12, 2021, after one year of the COVID-19 pandemic, the EASI Board of Directors decided to make a statement concerning the growing problem of blatant discrimination and violence against Asian persons with an article from the Sacrament Bee and a statement from the Board of Directors (both below). Of special concern is the impact of these acts of discrimination on Asian elders.

*On April 18th, 2018, a group of three Board Members and two CSUF Interns took a trip to visit the Sacramento Senior Safe House. They were hosted by Juanita Daniels the House manager. Our team was able to see the beautiful setting and how well organized the House was. The residents were happy, safe and positive about having this resource available in their community. We hope that Fresno will soon be able to provide a similar shelter for our elders.
