Allies / Alliés

From frontline health care workers to those in our communities who are speaking out – and calling out – racism in Canada in all its forms, we have many allies.

Our experiences during COVID-19, as Chinese and Asian Canadians, and Indigenous peoples, coincide with the global Black Lives Matter protests against anti-Black racism in law enforcement and other forms of systemic racism, stemming from the aftermath of the murder of Black American George Floyd.

Global solidarity for racial justice and equity for all brings hope to those on the frontlines changing our society to become truly more inclusive.

Share your Canadian experience in the fight against anti-Asian racism during the COVID-19 pandemic here.

Des travailleurs de la santé de première ligne à ceux de nos collectivités qui s’expriment – et dénoncent – le racisme au Canada sous toutes ses formes, nous avons de nombreux alliés.

Nos expériences pendant la COVID-19, en tant que Canadiens chinois et asiatiques, et peuples autochtones, coïncident avec les manifestations mondiales Black Lives Matter contre le racisme anti-noir dans l’application de la loi et d’autres formes de racisme systémique, découlant des conséquences du meurtre du noir américain, George Floyd.

La solidarité mondiale pour la justice raciale et l’équité pour tous apporte de l’espoir à ceux qui sont en première ligne et changent notre société pour devenir vraiment plus inclusive.

Partagez votre expérience canadienne dans la lutte contre le racisme anti-asiatique pendant la pandémie du COVID-19 ici.
