The National Forum on Anti-Asian Racism
June 3, 2021
On June 10-11, the National Forum on Anti-Asian Racism will bring together distinguished speakers from across sectors to have frank discussions about the ongoing crisis of anti-Asian racism in Canada. The event will focus on the articulation of bold actions for change as well as strengthening relationships of advocacy with other anti-racism movements.

The University of British Columbia will be hosting the two-day virtual event on June 10-11. The first day of programming will be 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 morning sessions will consist of plenary panels and continue with concurrent/interactive sessions in the afternoon. The second day will be a working session with sector leaders, informed by the outcomes of day one. The event will culminate in a public session; this will be an opportunity to share the list of bold actions and key priorities to be implemented across the country.

Prem Gill, CEO, Creative BC is speaking on Day 1 for the panel: What Does Media Have To Do With Anti-Asian Racism?
