Stop Asian Hate: Support Asian Canadians Fund

Donation protected
What is the Stop Asian Hate movement?
During the pandemic, there has been an alarming surge of racist attacks against Asian and Asian Canadian communities. The global #StopAsianHate movement calls for an end to discrimination and violence.

The Fight COVID Racism  and Elimin8hate reporting pages have collectively received over 1,500 reports of racist attacks across Canada, since March 2020. Members of the Asian community in Canada are enduring physical and verbal attacks and increased incidents of hostility.

Reports of anti-Asian hate crimes only continue to increase. Together, we can fight racism in Canada. 

Why now?
COVID-19 related racism against Asians and Asian Canadians is on the rise. Instead of being recognized as contributing significantly to the fight against COVID-19, Asian communities in Canada have been met with racism, violence and attacks.

One account from an incident report read, “Two males in their late 20s / early 30s attacked me from behind during my morning walk. They kicked me repeatedly for a couple of minutes, while shouting at me to go back to China with the COVID-19 virus that I brought.”

Canada continues to have a higher number of anti-Asian racism reports per capita than the United States. The incidences reported per capita in Canada are double those reported in the United States. COVID-19 has only revealed the long-standing history of targeted racism against Asian Canadians. 

The severity and pervasiveness of anti-Asian racism reported requires immediate action and calls for lasting social change. 

Where will the donations go?
All donations will be received and administered by Project 1907 through a centralized fund. 

30% of funds will be used to support Project 1907 and Chinese Canadian National Council Toronto Chapter’s data collection initiatives, including the continuation of data collection on incidents of racism, hate and violence experienced by the Asian diaspora in Canada via covidracism.ca  and elimin8hate .org

10% of funds will be used to support the Chinese Canadian National Council for Social Justice’s work in raising awareness and providing education to help shift discriminatory behaviours and attitudes toward the Asian diaspora in Canada

60% of funds will be distributed to the following grassroots organizations working to address anti-Asian racism and uplift Asian Canadian communities: 

1. Butterfly Asian and Migrant Sex Worker Support Network 
2. Viet Collective for Community Justice 
3. Council of Agencies Serving South Asians 
4. Anakbayan Canada 
5. Arirang Age Friendly Community Centre/Rose of Sharon Care Home

About Project 1907
Project 1907 is a grassroots group made up of Asian women. We provide spaces for diasporic Asians to understand our histories, explore our identities, examine our privileges and reclaim our power. We aim to elevate Asian voices that are underrepresented and undervalued in mainstream political, social and cultural discourse.

About Chinese Canadian National Council Toronto Chapter
CCNCTO is an organization of Chinese Canadians in the City of Toronto that promotes equity, social justice, inclusive civic participation, and respect for diversity for the past 41 years. We advocate with and for the rights of frontline essential workers, like grocery store workers, personal support workers, and restaurant workers. Other work include fostering youth social justice leadership, awareness raising and public education on the marginalizations faced by racialized and immigrant communities in Toronto.

About Chinese Canadian National Council for Social Justice
CCNC-SJ’s goals in 2020 are shaped of course by the current outbreaks in anti-Asian racism caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. Our main project is Empowering, Engaging, and Equipping Canadians to Combat Anti-Asian Racism through Online Resources and Social Media.

Land Acknowledgement
Project 1907 is situated on the traditional, ancestral and unceded territories of the xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam), Sḵwx̱wú7mesh (Squamish) and səlilwətaɬ (Tsleil-Waututh) Nations.

CCNCTO and CCNC-SJ are located on the traditional territories of many First Nations including the Anishnaabek, Haudenosaunee, Huron-Wendat, the Seneca, and most recently, the Mississaugas of the Credit River.

We are grateful for the tremendous labour and leadership of Indigenous peoples in the racial justice movement.

As the country mourns the discovery of the remains of 215 Indigenous children at the site of the former Kamloops Indian Residential School on Tk’emlúps te Secwépemc territory, we stand with Indigenous communities and residential school survivors fighting for justice, sovereignty and human rights. We encourage all settlers to review the Truth and Reconciliation Commission's Calls to Action and support Indigenous-led organizations including the Indian Residential School Survivors Society. A helpline for residential school survivors can be reached at: 1-866-925-4419.
