Hope for Our Future Event
The Asian American Task Force and the RUHS-BH MHSA Cultural Competency Program present the "Hope for Our Future" event.

This is a virtual celebration of Mental Health Awareness Month and Asian Pacific American Heritage Month.

Join us as we come together as a community to share resources, coping strategies, and how our heritage can be a wellness tool during this COVID-19 worldwide pandemic

Kids can participate in our youth art contest! Submit a drawing, poem, or short story about how Asian culture brings you hope. Five winners will each receive a $25 gift card!

The program features a few speakers who will share their stores of heritage, wellness and hope; a display of art work by school age children/youth and the latest updates about resources especially as it pertains to Asian Pacific Americans.
