The National Coalition of Canadians Against Anti-Asian Racism (NCCAAR) is a not-for-profit entity that advances public education on anti-Asian racism and promotes racial equality. It does so through research, knowledge mobilization, education and training, media engagement, and convening events, activities and educational programs.
NCCAAR engages in public policy dialogue to develop educational programming and initiatives to combat hate and systemic discrimination in Canadian communities and creates and supports Canadian scholarships and bursaries for students to advance knowledge in the area of race relations and equity, and methods of promoting racial equity.
The National Coalition of Canadians Against Anti-Asian Racism (NCCAAR) aims to bring together the many organizations and communities across Canada working to combat anti-Asian racism by sharing information and mitigating duplication of efforts.
This is a grassroots initiative by Asian Canadians and our allies, calling all of us to confront racism amid the COVID-19 pandemic and beyond. We stand in solidarity with all Asian communities, #BlackLivesMatter, and Indigenous Peoples in dismantling white supremacist structures.
Our dedicated Board of Directors include:
The Right Honourable David Johnston (Honorary Chair), Janice Fukakusa (Chair), Kevin Au-Yeung, Winston Chan, Brigette Chang-Addorisio, Melissa Grelo, Goldy Hyder, A.W. Lee, Carol Lee, Brandt Louie, Christine Nakamura, Santa Ono, Pamela Sugiman
