SABA Oregon would like to express its deepest sympathy and condolences to the people and families who have suffered illness or loss of life due to the novel coronavirus.
During these unprecedented times, we want to re-assure you and our community that we are here to help, and that we will get through this together.
COVID-19 is a global and human issue, requiring each individual, despite their race, gender, political position, age, or title, to act on behalf of humanity as a whole. We urge our community to treat one another with respect, dignity and compassion while we fight through this pandemic together.
SABA-OR strongly condemns all xenophobic and racist rhetoric and actions that our brothers and sisters of the Asian community have endured in response to the spread of COVID-19. We encourage and call on our state and nation's law enforcement and prosecutors to investigate these inhumane acts as criminal acts of violence and hate crimes.
Please follow and share Governor Kate Brown's Executive Order which was signed into effect today, March 23, 2020. The Executive Order can be viewed here: https://govsite-assets.s3.amazonaws.com/jkAULYKcSh6DoDF8wBM0_EO%2020-12.pdf?fbclid=IwAR21vUeBpDF29hHY_K1X8weBoNsXgPK2AmZAZ9mAU-cJ_SzBnGw72z2-Ezg
Thank you and please feel free to reach out to us with any questions or support.
Stay home, save lives.
