Being Asian: Past, Present and Future with Vicky Zhou​

Join us to hear about Vicky’s perspective as a migrant and young Asian woman in Canada while discussing the topics of anti-Asian racism and Sinophobia in the US and Canada, inter and intra-racism due to colorism within the Asian community and being the “angry Asian” during these challenging times. 

Vicky believes that our world needs more allyship, compassion and solidarity now more than ever. She hopes that her writing will empower the Asian community to rise against anti-Asian racism, and help to foster a sense of unity across BIPOC communities simultaneously.
