The Canadian Race Relations Foundation would like to thank everyone who attended our recent roundtable and Annual Public Meeting in Vancouver, “Building Bridges among East Asian Canadians: How Does Racism Affect Us.”
This Community Forum and Annual Public Meeting was a partnership event presented by the Canadian Race Relations Foundation (CRRF) and the Human Rights Committee of the Greater Vancouver Japanese Canadians Citizens Association (GVJCCA).
The event began with the unveiling of a plaque in commemoration of Cunningham vs. Tomekichi 'Tomey' Homma, who fought for the voting rights for Japanese Canadians (other Asian Canadians had similar treatment of having no right to vote) in the early 20th century.
Photos and video from the event will be shared in the coming weeks.
