Hope Is Where the Heart Is
We are three ladies from the Tri-Cities wanting to make a difference in our community.
With the onslaught of Anti-Asian Racism happening since the start of the pandemic, Asians in our communities have been unfairly marginalized and have been subject to increased hate both verbal and physical. We hope to change that using our collective resources and connections to help foster a more inclusive community.
Our mandate is as follows:
We hope to collaborate with local businesses and other non-profit organizations to facilitate ways in which we can work together to help combat discrimination and hate in our communities. We plan to create and host events in and around the Tri-Cities to bring all communities together.
We want this to be a platform where people can share their stories of racial discrimination or hate within their community. It is important to hear the stories of others and how it has affected them. This is the only way we can learn from one another and heal. It will also enable us to find out ways in which we can help.
It is so important for us at Asian Impact Society to support others particularly the seniors and youth in our community. We hope to achieve this by way of financial aid, care packages, connecting people to the right organizations for support, or creating bursaries for the youth in our community.
Education is the key to dismantling discrimination against others. We hope to learn more about the impacts of racism and mental health, the colourful history of Asians in our very own community, and we hope to connect and feature some prominent figures in our community to speak to us about the topic of racism and how we can build a better and more inclusive future for the next generation.
