Asian Canadian Women: Support, Strength, and Solidarity

May 5 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Asian Canadian Women: Support, Strength, and Solidarity

If you are of Asian descent in The United Church of Canada and self-identify as woman, genderqueer, and/or nonbinary, you are invited to gather together in Asian Heritage Month this May. There will be time to get to know one another, talk about our places in the church, and explore the intersections of our racial identities and gender identities. Asian women are particularly visible and vulnerable during this pandemic time. Please be welcome to a safe meeting space to connect, lament, and honour one another.

The gatherings will begin with a brief welcome by Adele Halliday (Anti-Racism and Equity Lead, General Council Office) and be facilitated by Kim Uyede-Kai (Minister, Communities of Faith Support, Anti-Racism, and Right Relations, Shining Waters Regional Council).

Gathering times:
• Sunday, May 2 (6:00-8:00 p.m. EDT)
• Wednesday, May 5 (6:00-8:00 p.m. EDT)
You are welcome to come to one session or both!

To register, please send an email to anti-racism@united-church.ca. In your email, please include your full name, email address, and Asian ancestry.  A Zoom link will be sent after registration.
