Who Are We?

Stand With Asians Coalition (SWAC) is a grassroots movement that started in Burnaby, British Columbia, on April 23, 2021, to stand up against the rising incidence of anti-Asian and other forms of racism. Centred around a Facebook group, SWAC obtained over 30 cities’ proclamations (over 8.3 million Canadians represented) to declare May 10, 2021, as the National of Action Against Anti-Asian Racism. SWAC is working to unite municipalities across the country in acknowledging the impact of anti-Asian racism as a first step towards developing more effective policy initiatives.
