Responding to Hate Guide – Responding to Anti-Asian Racism
As the COVID-19 Pandemic has spread there has been a documented increase in racism against Chinese and Asian Canadians. “Fear and hatred have led some Canadians to blame Chinese Canadians for bringing the virus to Canada. The pandemic provides an excuse for those who have long harboured racist ideology towards Chinese Canadians in particular and Asian Canadians in general to act out their belief.” (Colour of Poverty – Colour of Change Network).
Our sister clinic, the Chinese & Southeast Asian Legal Clinic, has produced a handy guide to aid people who have experienced hate and racism during the pandemic and beyond.
