To combat the increasing anti-Asian racism, Chinese Canadian organizations across Canada launch Fight
COVID Racism (www.covidracism.ca) a website dedicated to tracking and reporting anti-Asian racism and
xenophobia in Canada.
Join to learn about the campaign and the webtool and get some insights on some of the preliminary data
that has been collected tracking anti-Asian racism and hate crimes across Canada. This press conference
will bring together anti-racist organizers, people who have spoken out against racism and the press in the
hopes of encouraging those who have experienced racism to speak out and fight back against racism.
We encourage you to connect with the campaign on Instagram and use the
hashtag #fightcovidracism to help us reach Asian communities across Canada.
