Since the COVID-19 pandemic began, members of the Asian diaspora have been subjected to increasing blame, stigma, verbal and physical attacks. No matter its form, it is unacceptable.

Sadly, the recent surge of anti-Asian violence and harassment around the world has deep historical roots. Canadians must reaffirm their belief in their collective resilience, and their commitment to equity, diversity and inclusion. United in the same spirit and mission, the panellists will share concerns, experiences and insights in We Rise Together: Stopping Anti-Asian Racism.

Carleton is pleased to hold this important panel discussion. Please join us for this dialogue to create real changes.

When: Thursday, May 15, 2021 at 5:30 p.m. (EST).
