The South Asian Heritage Month 2021 Panel Discussion features 6 heroes who have been actively making a difference during COVID-19.
The annual South Asian Heritage month (SAHM) campaign is part of CASSA’s ongoing work to mobilize the South Asian communities’ voice and action towards Canadian and global justice by creating spaces for conversations, learning/unlearning, and bridging gaps within and between communities.
The theme of this year’s event is “Celebrating COVID-19 Heroes.” South Asians in Canada have been disproportionately impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic and have borne the brunt of the negative consequences along with other racialized communities. This year’s poster features some of the South Asian Canadian leaders who demonstrated incredible resilience and strength to support the victims of the pandemic.
This is the sixth year we are featuring this important initiative with the objective of raising awareness and celebrating the contribution of South Asian Canadians to our country’s social fabric. We hope you will join us at this event to celebrate the tremendous accomplishments of the South Asian community in various sectors of Canadian society. This event will feature the recognition of South Asian Canadian Champions and a panel discussion.
