The Amnesty International Chapter at Broome hosted a donation drive for the Chinese Culture and Education Center (CCEC), which is a non-profit organization that serves as a resource for Chinese culture and education related programs. Amnesty was focusing on the current issue of aggression against the Asian population in the US by helping the Asian population in our community. Donations of toys, children’s books, hygiene items, and canned food were donated to help the 1st and 2nd generation Chinese families that are struggling financially to support their families due to the pandemic. The Asian Cultural Table in the BHS cafeteria provided information on how to prevent aggression, educational tips, and offered ways to report incidents centered around the current issue facing our Asian American community today.
