A Special Message
to all of us

We are being faced with uncertain times.
COVID-19 is bringing with it anxiety, concern and fear. The pandemic is challenging our strength as a people and as a community.

In the face of this pandemic, the same values that have grounded us in this LuQuLuQu enaction to unite the very best of us to support families forced to flee their homes is being tested. We are catching a glimpse of our fellow forcibly displaced brothers and sisters’ lived realities – the anxiety, concern, and fear faced when making the decision to flee home to find safety from danger. Except we are enclosing ourselves in our homes, finding safety from danger from this virus.

The response we need in the face of this pandemic is the same response we have encouraged since the beginning of our journey together in supporting our forcibly displaced brothers and sisters: Channel the Spirit of Ubuntu, Ujama, and Yi bi ma.

These African philosophies have guided our communities for generations. Nestled in the practice of taking care of one another these philosophies recognize that our humanity is defined by co-existing harmoniously with each other. This belief has always been at the cornerstone of the LuQuLuQu movement.

Just as we rally together and recognize the resilience of sisters and brothers who have been forcibly displaced, we must now rally around each other to build resilience as a community together in the wake of this pandemic. Let us show each other compassion and care in these difficult times.

You are me and I am you. Our humanity is tied together. We are in this together.

With love and solidarity,

Your LuQuLuQu family

Take Action!
