In collaboration with teachers, students, and families from Asian Canadian communities across the GTA, our Fighting Racism in Canada Educator’s Tools was developed to help students, grade 4 and up, understand racism and how to confront/address it safely in their communities.
Our toolkit and resources include a two-part video series, 6 infographics and additional resources and citations for educators and adults to support further learning.
Check out our Community Conversations video series which is a collection of interviews reflecting on the effects of systemic racism from a multi-generational perspective between youths and families.

This report aims to highlight the experiences of work and life during the COVID-19 pandemic for Chinese Canadian frontline workers and discusses some social and policy changes that are necessary to adequately support Chinese Canadian immigrant working class communities. We focus on how Chinese Canadian immigrant frontline workers have been impacted by COVID-19.
In response to addressing the growing anti-Asian racism that has intensified amidst COVID-19, our organizations: the Chinese Canadian National Council – Toronto Chapter; Chinese Canadian National Council Social Justice; Chinese and Southeast Asian Legal Clinic; and, Civic Engagement Network – Society of Canada – have come together to create Fight COVID Racism, a website platform dedicated to tracking and reporting anti-Asian racism and xenophobia in Canada.
This project aims to validate the spectrum of experiences felt across Asian Canadian communities and seeks to use the documentation to inform future efforts for collective action against anti-Asian racism and xenophobia. READ REPORTS >>

Elementary Teachers’ Federation of Ontario (ETFO) and Toronto District School Board (TDSB) have partnered to develop Addressing Anti-Asian Racism: A Resource for Educators, a resource to empower educators to take action against anti-Asian racism.
Addressing Anti-Asian Racism: A Resource for Educators provides a foundation for reflection, discussion and social justice action, and centres Indigeneity and Black lives within the document. It also solidifies the work of anti-racism as a practice and approach through understanding, interconnecting and allying multiple identities and issues.
This resource was created by a team of educators of Asian descent whose lived experiences, both personal and professional, and knowledge and passion for social justice are reflected in its pages. The resource includes: conceptual frameworks, knowledge and issues; a toolkit for school leaders and educators; and community resources and relevant policies.
