ACCT Foundation will launch an anti-racism Action Center to collect and track incidents of racism and stigma, to help Canadian Chinese to voice against racism, stigma and discrimination.
Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, particularly those from Asian backgrounds, are reporting increasing experiences of racism and xenophobia. The pandemic has also magnified systemic racism across the country. The ACCT Foundation Action Center allow individuals who have been impacted by any racist or xenophobic behaviours, to report or share their stories.
ACCT Foundation plans to work with public and other community- based organizations to develop targeted education and media campaigns, to provide resources for impacted individuals and to advocate for policies and programs dedicated to curtailing racial profiling.
