On May 27, 2018, the CRRF in partnership with the Asian Heritage Society of Manitoba conducted a focus group of 23 youth aged 18-35 to have them share their perspectives on issues of racism in Canada. Celebrating Asian Heritage with All: Our Youth, Our Tomorrow, also featured a keynote address from CRRF Board member Orlando Bowen.
This focus group was the second in a series of National Conversations focus groups aimed at surveying the perspectives of youth 18-35 on issues of racism. The insights gained from this event will be used to craft a report detailing youth perspectives of racism and race relations in Canada. Future focus group locations will be announced in the near future. The CRRF would like to thank Art Miki and the Asian Heritage Society for their work at the event, as well as the Canadian Museum for Human Rights for sponsoring the event space.
