Thai-Cambodian Portland woman Rinna Rem is asking her "white friends" to financially contribute to her therapy expenses via a campaign through the crowdfunding website YouCaring. Rem states in the campaign description:

“I grew up in and live in the PDX area. The stress of living as a Thai-Cambodian woman in such a white city replete with constant interpersonal and institutional racism has a big toll on my health and wellbeing. I see an amazing therapist to cope with this shit, but I spend $100/month on therapy for bi-weekly appointments. Now it’s your turn to pay!”

Rem cites a fact sheet published by the American Psychological Association and an article published in The Atlantic to reinforce statements such as "stress builds up cumulatively, resulting in higher risks of disease."

“[S]tress related to every day racism has been found a major factor in health disparities among people of color, including mental health disorders.”

If you would like to contribute to Rem's therapy expenses, you can do so at her campaign's YouCaring page.
