Children and adolescents (up to 18 years) reported 29% of racist incidents in 2021 according to the CCNCTO and Project 1907 (2022) report. Reports by Youth, 18 years of age or younger, rose astronomically by 286% from the previous year.

ASIAN GOLD RIBBON – Asian Women Mental Health Summit 

Friday, May 20, 2022, 3:00 p.m. – 5:00 p.m. EDT

Join this 2-hour community conversation with honoured guests; and engage with us in a community dialogue.

The CCNCTO and Project 1907 (2022) study indicates a 47% increase in anti-Asian racism reports in 2021 overall. Sixty-four percent were made by women, which is an increase of 8% from 2020. Women continue to be the most targeted in anti-Asian racist attacks in Canada.

Together with community allies, we will remember Michelle Go and Christina Yuna Lee and hear about the impact of gender-based and race-based racism on Asian women. We will unite and develop Calls to Action for Asian Women’s mental health support in Canada, where bold changes are needed to end race-based traumatic stress.
