We are against hate which targets continually marginalized people, no matter if they are Asian, Asian-American, Pacific Islanders, Black, Indigenous, people of color, and LGBTQ+ identifying. We support movements for reform, protest, and equality. A collection of resources and organizations working toward these efforts, and those which offer support, can be found here.

We will continue to amplify marginalized voices, and welcome all, their ideas, their events, and their words. Our words here are not enough, but we wanted to say we support you and will continue to do so through our actions.

An additional list of support and relief funds can be found here.

In Washington author Elena Taylor’s novel All We Buried, interim sheriff Elizabeth “Bet” Rivers has always had one repeat nightmare: a shadowy figure throwing a suspicious object into her hometown lake in Collier, Washington. Then the report arrives. In the woods of the Cascade mountain range, right in her jurisdiction, a body floats to the surface of Lake Collier. The more she learns the tragic history of Collier, the more Bet realizes she doesn’t know the townspeople as well as she thought, and nothing can prepare her for what she is about to discover.

Portland author Baron Birtcher’s Fistful of Rain is the sequel to 2017’s South California Purples. Set in 1975, it is the story of a nation, a rural county, and a small town coming to terms with turbulent change. Sheriff and cattle rancher Ty Dawson finds himself at the center of a battle between town residents and the “hippies” who appear to be threatening their way of life, a struggle that leads both sides to violence. Written with equal parts elegance and grit, Fistful of Rain is a fast-paced literary thriller populated by unforgettable characters, outstanding dialogue, and a setting that will have you wishing you could live in it long after the last page has been turned.

Oregon author Kathleen Valenti’s As Directed is the third in her Maggie O’Malley mystery series. In the shadow of a past fraught with danger and tainted by loss, former pharmaceutical researcher Maggie O’Malley is rebuilding her life, trading test tubes for pill bottles as she embarks on a new career at the corner drugstore. But as she spreads her wings, things begin to go terribly wrong. A customer falls ill in the store. Followed by another. And then more. As Maggie and her best friend Constantine begin to investigate, they discover that some of the deadliest doses come from the most unexpected places.
