We are saddened by the recent hate acts committed against these communities. We are joined together in solidarity with WIN and the AAPI communities against Anti-Asian hate and discrimination and bigotry in all forms.

The City of Olympia wants to hear from Black, Indigenous, People of Color to discuss race and equity in Olympia.
In the military it is instilled in you that the person to your left and right may one day be responsible for saving your life. The worst-case scenario is you could be on the battlefield and must depend on someone you don’t know to help you survive. That’s powerful and it stays with you long after you leave service. I believe this is an unspoken bond, unique to Veterans. And in my opinion, that this is why the effects of sexual violence in the military are even harder to overcome; Veterans often struggle long after they leave the service.
