Today, Friday March 26, 2021 is a National Virtual Day of Action & Healing to #STOP ASIAN HATE on the anniversary of the signing of the Naturalization Act (March 26, 1790). Child Guidance Center stands united with our Asian American Pacific Islander (AAPI) community against violence, harassment, racism, sexism, and discrimination.
