On behalf of all of us at EAH Housing, I want to condemn acts of hatred against any member of our community. Since our inception more than 50 years ago, our staff, residents, vendors, business partners, and community advocates have worked together towards social justice.
The heartbreaking violence against Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders (AAPI) is a stark reminder of the hard work we need to do to change our society. We recognize and appreciate the contributions the AAPI community continues to make to our organization, the communities we serve, and the world we live in. We pledge our support to you.
If you experience or witness a hate crime, please report it to the following services:
- For safety tips please visit: https://stopaapihate.org/resources/
- To further support the AAPI community or for more information/resources, visit Asian Americans Advancing Justice.
Diversity, equity, inclusion, and belonging are at the core of EAH Housing. Everyone is welcome here, and we will continue to create communities where all people can live and thrive.
We stand firm with each other and with those we serve.

Our nation is at a crossroads. The events of the last few weeks highlight the racial injustice and systemic racism that still exist in our country. Our society will not change until we take more concrete steps to change it. We need to come together to dismantle archaic systems, deep-rooted biases and discriminatory beliefs.
EAH Housing was founded in 1968 – another time of civil unrest, as a response to the assassination of Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. – to provide affordable housing and healthy neighborhoods in order to empower and provide all people with more opportunities for a better life.
Our organization is committed to social justice. We believe “a roof is just the beginning” and providing quality affordable housing is a critical step in creating economic and social equality. We stand by our mission and support each one of you – those of you who are calling for justice, those who want to be heard and those who want to create a better place to live for everyone in our country.
It is time to act. Please support those organizations that are committed to diversity, equity, and inclusion. Together, we will proactively fight racism and work to create an equal, fair, and just society.
