411 Seniors Centre extends our support and solidarity to our members of Asian descent who are facing increased racism.
We are deeply saddened by the results of a recent survey published by the Chinese Canadian National Council, which has shown in the past year there has been a sharp increase in incidents of anti-Asian racism since the COVID-19 pandemic began.
411 Seniors Centre knows that some of our Asian members have faced racism in the past years. Several of our Asian community members reported to us that they are afraid to go out of their homes because of the prevalence of anti-Asian racism.
411 Seniors Centre wants to support our members to ensure that they feel safe and secure. We oppose anti-Asian racism in all its form. We encourage all 411 members to join us in the hard work to oppose anti-Asian racism.
