Their practical assistance and the sharing of valuable computer skills forged heartwarming intergenerational connections. Additionally, these activities not only enriched the lives of the elderly but also enhanced the children's Mandarin language proficiency. The inclusive atmosphere at AAC serves as the cornerstone of these meaningful interactions, and we eagerly anticipate continued support from our community.

The Asian American Federation (AAF) collaborated with the Nonviolent Peace Force to provide de-escalation and situational awareness safety training for AAC patrol members. Both AAC patrol members and student volunteers actively participated in this event. As an organization dedicated to community volunteer service, AAC aimed to learn how to protect themselves and minimize escalating situations in complex and ever-changing environments. They also sought to enhance their ability to promote community safety. The training emphasized the concept of "Hope Against Hate" to combat discrimination and foster unity within the AAPI community. In the future, AAC hopes to have more community engagement in their activities, benefiting the AAPI community and furthering their role as a bridge between the community, local government, and mainstream society.

We had another annual AAC charity dinner. AAC members celebrated their dedication, love, and belief, for guarding the safety of our community. We spent an unforgettable and enjoyable night. The singing was heartfelt. The dancing was beautiful. The JD drum was touching. Everyone was moved by the dedication of the team members tonight. Thank all the team members for their hard work.
In 2023, we will continue to go better, higher and farther for our mission. Let us pray together for the bright tomorrow of AAC. We will become a much bigger family, to further fulfill our commitment and aspirations to the community! We are so grateful to you all, for all your supporters in the year of 2022. Tomorrow we will continue to patrol on the street of our neighborhood. Please join us, for we have the same mission together.
On October 29, 30 of our AAC members with 10 students and 20 adults contributed to our community by handing out free lunches to people in the community. The event was held in front of the Queen's Public Library on main St. In the beginning, we handed out flyers to fellow pedestrians while the table was being set up. Then all our members gathered up again and we all got different tasks. Some handed out free lunches, some set up the food, others controlled the lines of people and one person made announcements. This was a very successful event, as me handed out 200 lunches and got praise from community members. We even let children participate in AAC to give a share of love to the community, so they can have the best experience in growing up. When the children grow up they look back on the process of serving the community and leave a legacy at that time. The Volunteer certificate is a symbol. The proper process is giving love, the beauty left in the course of life is precious. We need children to grow up in sunshine and love. Our children are the most caring part of American society!
今天10/29日周六中午12:00，AAC巡逻队协助发放由“SEND CHINATOWN LOVE”提供的免费午餐活动，在Main Street图书馆门口再次举办，我们有近三十名巡逻队员和学生队员参加了今天的活动，向社区展现了 AAC 的风采，这次活动的两个重要的主旨：

On October 10, we took 30 of our student volunteers and 15 adult volunteers to visit the 9/11 memorial. Our team visited the museum so we could learn about the cause of the terrorist attack and the effect it had on America. We wanted to show students how Asian Americans were also greatly affected by the attack. During the tour, we talked and discussed the displays. The foundation of the twin towers, metal beams, and rocks gave us an idea of how serious and tragic this attack was on New York. We then went into a photo gallery in which we walked around looking at the photos of the deceased victims. This was an emotional place. We wanted our students to see that Asian Americans were also victims of this tragic attack, and to teach them why our team is here to protect Asian Americans. The next gallery we visited showed us videos, pictures, and personal belongings from the day the terrorists struck. Our team saw the planes crashing into each other and the destruction of the Twin Towers. We learned that millions of people were affected on that day; first responders, rescue workers, volunteers, victims, and families of survivors. We wanted to teach the children about this horrible attack, as the AAC wanted everyone to know, to honor, and to respect the victims of this tragedy. AAC wanted the students to learn that this is just the past and that we can work together to protect each other. 9/11 is an example that teaches our team to protect the people of our community. We intend to teach this message to remember this part of history and work together to prevent this from happening again.
10/10/2022，我们AAC队员和学生们参观由屠老师安排的911 纪念馆参观活动：了解纽约在2001年改变美国历史的重要事件，我们纽约经历了911，多元的族裔开始了一段更加团结的历程，华裔是美国的一部分，我们也在这场灾难中牺牲了很多华人精英，记得这场历史就是让所有美国人记得恐怖分子是人类和美国的共同敌人，美国的团结才能让这个国家更伟大，她是所有美国人的共同家园 这是一场非常重要的 AAC重大的活动！
On September 1st, 2022, Asian American Cohesion (AAC) members had the honor to participate in the "BACK TO SCHOOL EVENT" sponsored by the "NYPD 109th Precinct".

Additionally, We also maintained an organized and safe environment while handing out school supplies.
On August 6th, 2022, Asian American Cohesion (AAC) members had the honor to take part in The E.R. Moore Houses Tenants Association Family Day. There, we were able to collaborate with other communities, especially those in African American and Hispanic communities, to enhance safety and mutual understanding of each other’s needs. Hand sanitizers and bottles of water were also handed out along with our fliers to promote our recognition and our mission, maintaining the safety and development of all communities, as well as exchanging cultures, traditions, and smiles with everyone.
谢谢大家的支持，其实我们第一代的淳淳赤子之心都是为未来，大家为了今天的政治是非吵得天翻地覆，其实我们全都错了，如果你忽视了所有未来的一代、二代、三代，有什么未来，政治遗产就是基于这一点：来了美国，就是华裔美国人，计较啥你来自哪里，痛同痛，幸同幸，人家看你们全是一样的面孔一家人，为什么我们自己却千方百计的分成你我他-不同的人、有高低、有区域分割的人，把自己的利益极小化，把所有的分歧极大化，从而牺牲了我们的二代和所有未来，大家深思一下，我们的AAC 就是应该传承最好的，大家不分彼此高低，做一个让人信服的实在，告诉孩子，我们曾经奋斗过，只是为了这笔政治遗产：孩子们的未来，没啥可以再纠结的 所有人的出发点就是最简单的：我们自己的社区，华人的桥头堡，失去以后难以再复还！很多事情只能先做再说，做好做成功总是没错 大家可以挑剔都没错：大局摆在那里，谁主沉浮？ 我们是华裔美国人，An integral part of you, an important part
Thank you for everyone’s support of the AAC. In fact, the heart of our first generation of pure children is for the future. Everyone is arguing about the politics of today, but we are all wrong. If you ignore all the future generations, the second generation, the third generation, what future is there? The political legacy is based on this: when you come to the United States, you are Americans, no matter where you come from. You share the pain, and the good fortune. Everyone sees you all as a family. Why must we divide everyone? Me and him - different people, people with high and low levels, and people with regional divisions, minimizing their own interests and maximizing all differences, thus sacrificing our second generation and all the future. Everyone thinks the AAC should be passed down to the best. Everyone, regardless of each other's high or low, be a convincing reality and tell the children that we have struggled, just for this political legacy: the future of the children, there is nothing to worry about. The starting point of all of them is the simplest: our own community, the bridgehead of the Chinese, is difficult to regain after it is lost! A lot of things can only be done first. It is always right to do well and be successful. Everyone can be picky and it is right: where the overall situation is, who will control the ups and downs? We are Chinese American!
On July 16th, Asian American Cohesion (AAC) members went to The Olde Towne of Flushing Burial Ground. There, they gathered with student volunteers and helped Burial Ground staff with weed control and gardening. Many people, including New York City council member Sandra Ung, participated. At a time of a lack of human resources, the burial ground really needed our help, and we were gratefully thanked by their kind staff. The event after around 2 hours when councilwoman Sandra Ung gave a speech that thanked the AAC for helping and contributing to community efforts and encouraged the preservation of the environment and our infrastructure.

Asian American Cohesion (AAC) and Soar Over Hate (SOH) collaborate to distribute resources to members of the Flushing community. The team provided hand sanitizers and personal alarms to everyone. Student leaders and members of Soar Over Hate (SOH) worked in small groups to teach everyone the mechanics of the alarm and how to use it. AAC staff took an active role in overseeing the student leaders and SOH members as they interacted with the public to ensure their safety. The emergence of the Covid-19 crisis has significantly skyrocketed the number of reported hate crimes and it is AAC’s mission is to promote a safe and non-discriminatory space for everyone in this community. The distribution of the alarms allows community members to alert people in a close proximity that they’re in need of assistance or medical attention. The team passed out a total of 4 boxes of hand sanitizers and over a hundred personal alarms to the public. In addition to this the team passed out flyers about volunteer opportunities and scholarship information. The distribution of sanitizer helps provide the community with sanitary items as we proceed to live in the midst of a pandemic. While the rules and regulations of the pandemic are not as heavily enforced, sanitary items are still necessary. As the Asian American Cohesion (AAC) and Soar Over Hate (SOH) members return to AAC’s office they’re provided lunch and English lectures. The lecture plays an important role in the cohesive AAC community and it breaks the language barrier between staff and student leaders. The Chairman highly encourages learning and utilizing multiple languages as it broadens available opportunities. AAC hopes to expand the safe and diverse environment of our team to our entire community. We are actively encouraging people to join our big family and to take initiative and further improve the safety and cohesion of our community to make it a much more developed space for everyone and future youth.
