Please help us spread awareness of this important conversation, a critical opportunity to stand together to drive meaningful action and academic- and community-led solutions to anti-Asian racism in Canadian universities.

Register today to join this conversation and encourage your community members, networks and peers to do the same. The event is free of charge and open to students, faculty, staff, and community members from across Canada. The Forum will highlight the relationship between anti-Asian racism and racism against Black, Indigenous and all racialized people.

Resources are available for you to use and share, including a short announcement, social media posts, and a short FAQ.

Thanks in advance for your support. We look forward to seeing you at the Forum!
