This month, Frances Jaye is investing in The Alliance of Cultural and Ethnic Harmony. We will be donating 2% of February's sales to support ACEH's mission to promote unity, justice, equal opportunity, ethnic awareness, cross-cultural understanding & appreciation for diversity in our community.
Founded in January 1999, the Alliance for Cultural and Ethnic Harmony, ACEH, is a non-profit, non-partisan, grass-roots group of ethnically diverse people from Holland and nearby areas. ACEH is a friendly organization that welcomes all people and works to create the feeling that our communities belong to everyone.
What Does ACEH Do?
- Holds monthly public meetings to talk about local and national justice and diversity issues, listen to speakers from different ethnic groups, and take part in "walk in my shoes" cross-cultural exercises.
- Provides a safe and respectful place to share experiences of prejudice and racism and to work on solutions.
- Works with ethnic and civic groups on projects to foster an inclusive community, including the Lakeshore Area Summit on Racism.
- Offers resources of ideas, speakers, materials and diversity training to schools, businesses, clubs, and religious organizations.
- Supports public efforts to oppose discrimination, racism, and violence.

Microagressions in the Community
