Pathways to Cross-Cultural Understanding is an international, nonprofit 501(c)(3), educational and cultural organization dedicated to helping individuals and groups from Asia adjust to learning, living, and working in North America. Through sharing experiences and resources to promote cross-cultural understanding, we also hope to advance North Americans’ awareness of Asian cultures.

Statement on Anti-Asian Racism

Pathways to Cross-Cultural Understanding (PCCU) stands firmly with the Asian and Asian-American community against anti-Asian racism in the United States.

  

We empathize with the plight that these Asian and Asian-American communities are experiencing a series of racist attacks, in which anti-Asian racism compounded with hatred and prejudice.


We proclaim our core values. We are committed to embrace and respect all differences and uniqueness regardless of gender, sexuality, language, race, abilities, appearances, or one’s origin.


We strive to foster an inclusive environment respecting all people and cultures and treating them with dignity. We uphold the spirit of equity and fairness for people of multicultural backgrounds.


We protest violence against Asian and Asian-American communities, and we hold our ground in our opposition to anti-Asian racism.
