Glow Community Center (GCC) in partnership with WAC Lighting and a network of supporters and volunteers completed its campaign to help combat the pandemic by supplying medical professionals and frontline workers with PPE supplies in NYC, Long Island and out of state. We are now mobilizing to address the recent rise of anti-Asian hate and make Flushing safe again. You can view the Youtube live recording from the concert here: Benefit Concert in YouTube
GCC is partnering with the following organizations from Flushing, Queens and a group of musicians, dancers and artists from the 5 boroughs:
1. Public Safety Patrol is a civilian team that performs daily foot and car patrols in Flushing. Among their members are small business owners, retired police officers and business professionals. This patrol group has been featured in media reports from NBC, WSJ, AFP, Sinovision and China News. There are daily 5-7pm walk patrols and 6-9pm car patrols. To equip their foot patrol volunteers, it takes $100 to provide vest, walkie talkie and other safety items. It takes $350 to equip civilian cars with patrol lights and emblems. See publicsafetypatrol.org
2. Cornerstone Thai Boxing will offer Self defense classes in our downtown Flushing location that is easily accessible to Flushing and nearby residents through Main St.'s transportation hub. Your $50 donation allows a participant to attend 2 classes and receive a personal safety kit. These classes empower Flushing residents to feel safe again and to help their neighbors during this crisis. See https://www.instagram.com/cornerstone_thai_boxing/
3. An eclectic group of musicians and artists who will perform a live 90-minute benefit concert that will be YouTube Live simulcasted - going beyond just words to raise awareness of Anti-Asian hate and raise funds to support our efforts in Flushing. https://glownyc.org/concert2021-bios/

在新型冠状病毒最肆虐的时刻，啓揚活动中心 (GCC) 与WAC 灯具公司及各方热心人士携手合作向全美各地的医护工作者、一线工作人员以及志愿者们捐赠上万多件个人防护设备及医疗物资。眼下，针对亚裔的仇恨犯罪日益激增，啓揚再次行动，为保护居民，建设更安全美好的法拉盛社区发声！
Public Safety Patrol 民间巡逻队（publicsafetypatrol.org）成立于2021年3月，每天坚持在法拉盛及周边执行步行巡逻和汽车巡逻。包括创始人在内，所有队员都是来自民间的志愿者。他们中有小企业业主，退休警员以及年轻的职场工作者等各行各业。他们的义举感染了社区，也引起媒体的广泛关注，曾被美国国家广播公司（NBC），华尔街日报（WSJ），法国新闻社（AFP）以及美国中文电视（Sinovision），中国新闻社（China News Service）等中英文主流媒体报道。巡逻队执勤时间为每晚5点到8点。民间巡逻面临着不可避免的风险。为了帮助步行巡逻义工更好地执行任务，我们筹款为步行巡逻义工购买醒目背心、无线对讲机等基本安全配备，预计每人100美元。义务巡逻的民用汽车需要配备巡逻灯和标志，预计需每车350美元。希望大家能够慷慨相助，支持和参与我们的队伍，一起来保护我们的社区！
啓揚活动中心将与 Cornerstone Thai Boxing（https://www.instagram.com/cornerstone_thai_boxing/）合作，共同举办自我防卫培训系列课程。啓揚地处法拉盛市中心，交通方便，法拉盛和附近居民可以就近参加培训。您捐赠的50美元可以资助1位受到反亚裔仇恨犯罪威胁的居民参加两次课程，同时配备包括便携报警器在内的自我防卫工具。疫情下的反亚裔仇恨犯罪日益激增，居民越来越害怕出门。我们提供这样的培训机会，就是希望帮助社区恢复信心，在这场危机中互帮互助，共度难关！
啓揚慈善义演将由一群来自不同族裔、文化背景的音乐家、舞蹈家们带来。（艺术家简介：https://glownyc.org/concert2021-bios/）虽然他们擅长的艺术领域各有不同，但他们拥有共同的心声：用艺术支持 #停止反亚裔仇恨！本场音乐会将长达90分钟，除在啓揚中心演出，还会在YouTube 上现场直播。行动大于言语，他们将用音乐提高公众对仇恨犯罪的认识，并为啓揚参与停止亚裔仇恨、建设美好社区的行动筹集善款。
