Join a descendant of Cumberland and Vancouver’s Chinatowns, Dr. Imogene Lim, for a journey through Asian Canadian history and racism in BC. Dr. Lim will also be sharing some of her own family’s history.
Following a brief Q&A with Dr. Lim, we will head into a discussion with our guest Leona Ahn, a member of the Anti-Racism Task Force at the Royal Road University. Bill Wang with the Central Okanagan Local Immigration Partnership (COLIP) and Wan Wan with the United Against Discrimination project (UAD) will join Leona to discuss the issues of Asian Racism and microaggressions in various situations.
The event will wrap up with some self-care tips for when you are doing this hard work, as well as the newest racism response protocol from Resilience BC.
