The Durham District School Board (DDSB) yesterday said it stands united against anti-Asian racism and discrimination, no matter where it occurs.
“Asian members of our community and across Canada have been experiencing an increase in racist acts over the past year,” said DDSB.
“Any acts of anti-Asian racism violate our commitment to learning environments that are free from discrimination and have no place in a school or community. We are unwavering in our responsibility to create, support and ensure safe spaces for Asian members of our community throughout,” said one of a series of DDSB tweets.
It said for anyone impacted by recent events, we are committed to providing support and encourage you to connect with a teacher, school administrator or our social work and psychological services teams by visiting: https://ddsb.ca/en/family-and-community-support/mental-health.aspx
