UBC: The National Forum on Anti-Asian Racism
UBC convened a two-day virtual event to address the ongoing crisis of escalating anti-Asian racism in Canada.
On June 10–11, 2021, a constellation of community organizers, scholars, and public intellectuals, along with key figures in government, health care, media, journalism, the corporate world and the not-for-profit sector convened for frank discussions about anti-Asian racism in our country with the aim of articulating bold and concrete recommendations for action.
The first day of programming was open to the public, with sessions focusing on the issues impacting Asian Canadians, coalition building across Asian Canadian communities, and effective access and advocacy for systemic change. The second day was a working session with sector leaders, informed by the outcomes of day one. The event culminated in a public session - an opportunity to share the list of bold actions and key priorities that will be presented for implementation.
