The Caribbean Cultural Center African Diaspora Institute, in partnership with our communities, is wholeheartedly committed to action in this moment of crisis. It is our duty to contribute to relief and recovery efforts and to support our brothers, sisters, families, and communities in the Caribbean.
Hurricanes Irma and Maria have had a devastating impact on the islands that are our root homes. It is our duty, it is our obligation, it is our responsibility to reach out to our communities in this time of dire need. The Caribbean Cultural Center African Diaspora Institute is committed to raising resources to be equally divided amongst on the ground community cultural institutions working with the most vulnerable communities requiring immediate assistance in Puerto Rico, Dominican Republic, St. Croix, and St. Thomas.
I know that our sacred communities, friends, and neighbors are all committed to assisting. Give what you can in whatever ways you are able to. Remember to be generous. Today, our friends and families on the islands are affected. Tomorrow, it could be us. Please make the effort to contribute what you can. It is our humanity, our love of others, and our devotion to family and friends that have provided the resilience and power to sustain. Let us continue to demonstrate the very kindness that binds us in this moment.
