IN response to the recent police killings of black men in the United States (Alton Sterling and Philando Castile), and the backlash against Black Lives Matter–Toronto’s protest at the Toronto Pride parade, Asians across Canada have written a series of letters to their families and communities to help start conversations about anti-Black racism.

Inspired by a similar initiative begun by Asian Americans, Letters for Black Lives Canada, intends to be a set of multilingual, culturally-aware resources for Asian-Canadians who want to talk to their parents and relatives about anti-Black racism in their own communities.

Featured Quote

The honest truth is there is still reluctance around immigration policy... When we want to talk about immigration and we say we want to bring more immigrants in because it's good for the economy, we still get pushback.
