COMTO Toronto & Region Webinar: Perspectives for Addressing the Rise in Anti-Asian Hate Crimes

May 25, 2021 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Join the COMTO Toronto & Region Chapter in recognizing Asian Heritage Month: Perspectives for Addressing the Rise in Anti-Asian Hate Crimes

 

The recent rise in anti-Asian hate crimes and discrimination over the past year has taken a toll on our Asian co-workers as well as our customers in the transportation sector. As a community builder and connector, transit can play a key role in eliminating these forms of discrimination in our societies.

Join COMTO Toronto & Region for an important panel discussion to learn more about the impacts of anti-Asian rhetoric and racially motivated attacks, as well as how we can move from allyship to action to build a more inclusive transit community.

Panelists:

  • Avvy Go, Clinic Director of the Chinese & Southeast Asian Legal Clinic
  • Kate Shao, Labour and Employment Lawyer and Board member of the Canadian Chinese National Council, Toronto Chapter
  • Leslie Woo, CEO of CivicAction
