COVID-19 Resource Hub

What does creative community building look like in a pandemic?

SEAD acknowledges that this current pandemic feels all too familiar to many in our Southeast Asian communities. We’re living in trying times that are uncertain, complicated, and heavy. Yet it’s not without forgetting the lessons of resiliency and perseverance that have passed down to us from our past and present ancestors. We’re grateful to pave ways to grow social empowerment ecosystems through cultural organizing, critical language, and just storytelling. SEAD’s commitment to the Southeast Asian diaspora still remains our core focus and in that spirit, we’re offering ways to pivot towards more innovative ways to do healing-centered and strategy-based storytelling.

We’ll be rolling out resources on a regular basis. Here’s our growing list:

General COVID-19 Resources
Translated in Burmese, Hmong, Karen, Khmer, Lao, Viet (and more as demands are needed).

Emergensea Corps
A collective volunteer-led response team for quick and easy requests for assistance including helpers who are fluent in Hmong, Khmer, Lao, and Vietnamese. Have a request or want to volunteer, get the details here: COVID-19 Needs Request Form
