NAMRC Addresses Asian-American and Pacific Islander Hate

Click here to download: Message from NAMRC President_03-25-2021

 

Dear NAMRC Members, Colleagues, and Friends,

The National Association of Multicultural Rehabilitation Concerns (NAMRC) condemns racism and hate toward the Asian-American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) communities. Over the past year, we have been saddened by attacks on communities of color. Attacks on Asian-Americans have increased dramatically throughout the pandemic (03/24/2021, https://www.nbcnews.com/news/asian-america/there-were-3-800-anti-asian-racist-incidents-mostly-against-n1261257).  According to the Pew Research Center survey, three in 10 Asian Americans (31%) report having experienced racial slurs or racist jokes since the beginning of the pandemic (See https://www.pewresearch.org/social-trends/2020/07/01/many-black-and-asian-americans-say-they-have -experienced-discrimination-amid-the-covid-19-outbreak/). The shootings on March 16 only exacerbates the fear and pain that the Asian-American community continues to endure. We support the victims and families impacted by these senseless acts of violence. As a nation, we must continue to educate ourselves, speak up, and do whatever we can to end the violence against all marginalized populations.

As stated in a previous communication by Dr. Bob McConnell, we in the NAMRC community are well-equipped with a model for change, helping others attain cultural competence. As such, the NAMRC community continues to provide exemplary leadership in the rehabilitation community and beyond, toward promoting cultural competence, advocacy, creating change, and opportunities for all marginalized populations. We continue to affirm our commitment and provide leadership in addressing multicultural issues with our membership and beyond.

Respectfully,

Robin E. Dock, Ph.D., LCMHCS, ACS, CRC, CFMHE

Open Letter to the NAMRC Membership

January 8, 2021

Open Letter to the NAMRC Membership—

The civil disobedience (a.k.a.) uprising, insurrection, riot, domestic terrorism, etc., which occurred on January 6th at our nation’s capital, has impacted each of us differently depending on our experiences, affiliation and perspective; but has effected everyone similarly in the recognition of its significance for our country. For persons of color, the appearance of an obvious double standard in the treatment of so-called protestors, there is an understandable and justifiable sense of righteous indignation and anger over what was witnessed. For those aligned with the President, there is obviously a frustration over the inability to be heard, in an election they have been convinced was stolen from them.

Clearly, what the events of the day have indicated is that the wounds in this country are deep, the divisiveness is real and severe, and the schisms have the potential to destroy the foundations of democracy. The events of the day, have given rise, to the people of good will, of a common recognition of the need for change. Now is the time to get beyond name calling and blaming, to seek strategies for betterment, and opportunities to find common ground. While retribution and punishment should appropriately be addressed, they do not represent, nor should they be regarded as solutions for the major differences in perspectives, situations and conditions that currently exist in America.

The critical first step in effecting change is recognition that change is necessary. I believe the events of January 6th have enabled us to achieve that essential first step; it has helped to create the opportunity for change. That step must be followed by a willingness among people of good will, to work on it to make it happen. I believe we have those people. Lastly, we need a plan for change, a model and tools to make it happen, and the commitment of resources to make it occur. Each of these, I believe, already exists and we must advocate collectively, assuring the commitment of necessary resources for this important end.

As we in the rehabilitation community move forward, there are two important commitments to be made:

  1. The acceptance of personal responsibility to help effect change; and all of the personal growth and investment of time that accompanies that commitment,
  2. An investment in the practice of dialogue; and the openness, active listening, learning and sharing of information that is an integral part of it.

The good news is that we in the NAMRC community have been equipped with an appropriate model for change, the model for helping others attain cultural competence. That basic three step model- self-awareness, increasing knowledge of cultures (others), and developing applications based on that knowledge, provides an appropriate blueprint for moving forward.

We are at the crossroads for change, we have the choice of patching an old road that keeps getting more potholes, or creating a new one to take us in a different direction. I am proud to be a part of an organization that is in the business of creating change and increasing possibilities for all marginalized populations.

In sincere reflection,

L. Robert (Bob) McConnell, DPA

On behalf of the NAMRC Board of Directors

Becoming Anti-Racist

Diagram for Becoming Anti-Racist which consists of four circles with various levels from becoming anti-racist to fear zone to learning zone to growth zone.

Click here to download the printout for this post

TO: NAMRC Members

In keeping with Dr. Temple’s appeal to start conversations that inspire change by building cross-cultural alliances, we share this chart, Becoming Anti-Racist chart was inspired by the work of Dr. Ibram X. Kendi and reflects his personal journey toward becoming anti- racist. First, we must define prejudice, discrimination, and racism:

  • Prejudice refers to irrational or unjustifiable negative emotions or evaluations toward persons from other social groups and it is primary determinant of discriminatory behavior (Fiske, Gilbert, & Gardner 2010).
  • Discrimination refers to inappropriate treatment of people of their actual or perceived group membership and may include both overt and covert behaviors, including microaggressions or indirect or subtle behaviors (e.g., comments) that reflect negative attitudes or beliefs about a non-majority group.
  • Racism refers to prejudice or discrimination against individuals or groups based on beliefs about one’s own racial superiority or the belief that race reflects inherent differences in attributes and capabilities. (Bailey, et al, 2017; Fiske, et al., 2010).

We encourage you to embark on your own personal journey with friends, family, and colleagues by discussing the different zones and taking action to reach and develop the growth zone.

Position Statement from President Michell Temple

Position Statement from President Michell Temple

Dear NAMRC Members:

The National Association of Multicultural Rehabilitation Concerns (NAMRC) wants to firmly state that the racially motivated violence against Black people starting with the most recent events involving George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, and Ahmaud Arbery in addition to the tens of thousands of Blacks who have lost their lives to COVID-19 is unacceptable. Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. said it best in 1963 from behind the walls of a Birmingham jail,  “Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere. We are caught in an inescapable network of mutuality, tied in a single garment of destiny. Whatever affects one directly, affects all indirectly.”

As a Black woman, President of the Association, and as the voice of the Board, I want you to know that I refuse to make sense of these senseless acts. The systemic societal issues that undergird our current situation reaffirm my commitment to engaging in uncomfortable conversations with civility.  I urge you to have conversations with diverse groups about these injustices to inspire change through the building of cross-cultural alliances.

More to come.

Sincerest regards,

Michell Temple, EdD, CRC, LPC/MHSP

President

January 2019 – December 2020
