Mosaic of Colour Caucus

March 2021: BCNU Condemns Anti-Asian Hate

BCNU stands in solidarity with all members affected by the rise in anti-Asian hate in Canada. 

report released on March 23 by the Chinese Canadian National Council Toronto Chapter, with contributions from other organizations, documented 1,150 racist attacks, the majority of which targeted people of East Asian origin.

The report provides a detailed and worrying illustration of “the growing climate of fear that Chinese and Asian Canadians continue to face” across Canada but in particular in British Columbia where nearly half of the recorded incidents have taken place.

BCNU is deeply concerned about the health and well-being of all Asian-Canadians, including our members and will continue to work in solidarity with community-based organizations to combat all forms of racism – in our workplaces and communities.

Mosaic of Colour Caucus

The Mosaic of Colour Caucus* can help you identify and tackle your needs living and working in BC.  The Caucus also encourages you to participate in BCNU, from becoming a steward, to attending meetings and Convention, to running for top offices.
