Asian Gold Ribbon Day 2021 Panel Discussions

Let’s Talk Webinar

May 20, 2021
1:00 p.m. – 3:00 p.m. MST

In response to the alarming rise in anti-Asian racism, the Act2EndRacism Network commissioned two production companies to produce five short videos that range from three to eight minutes each, seeking to counter disinformation and misinformation that has fueled anti-Asian sentiment. The goal of these videos is to have viewers reflect on their experiences, engage in conversations, and together find ways to address anti-Asian racism, hate and intolerance.

The Act2EndRacism Network will also produce discussion papers as a companion guide to the videos so that organizations, community partners and not-for-profits can use them as resources. We plan to launch these educational videos during Asian Heritage Month, and will be calling it the “Let’s Talk Video Series”. 

On May 20th, we will hold a panel discussion with a special focus on two videos (“Yellow Peril” and “Model Minority”) from 1:00 to 3:00 p.m. Mountain Time.

The Chief Commissioner of the Canadian Human Rights Commission, Marie-Claude Landry, and Deputy Minister Daneil Quan-Watson and Minister Bardish Chaagar as well. The goal of the panel discussion is to have a conversation about how anti-asian racism has manifested in our systems and how we can find ways to resolve them.
