Project Protech’s 11th Resilience Dialogue series will talk about the FaceRace campaign with CCNCSJ (The Chinese Canadian National Council for Social Justice). Markdown February 4, 2021 at 8 pm EST, registration required.
FaceRace is a collaborative grassroots anti-racism campaign created by partner organizations in the Chinese Canadian community in response to widespread fear and panic, resulting from the novel COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic in 2020. The FaceRace Campaign builds knowledge and awareness about anti-Chinese and Asian racism in Canada before and during the COVID-19 pandemic. It also aims to empower survivors of racism to identify and fight racism while promoting community resilience.
