Our hearts go out to the victims and families of recent shootings in Oakland, many of whom were Cambodian and included children. Our allies at the Cambodian Community Development, Inc (CCDI) whose office is located in Oakland, have been devastated by the recent acts of violence. CCDI is grassroots, volunteer-based organization that has provided programs and resources to address the needs of the Cambodian community here in the Bay Area. We hope for the safety of the Cambodian community in Oakland and for the continued work by CCDI. To help support CCDI or to learn more, visit CCDI's website here.
