Stop Anti-Asian Hate Rally on Sunday March 28

Home / Blog / Stop Anti-Asian Hate Rally on Sunday March 28

 

The Toronto Public Library Workers Union calls out anti-Asian racism in Canada and around the world. We stand in solidarity with Asian communities everywhere as we mourn both recent and past acts of horrific violence and hate.  We commit to recognize and fight white supremacy and fight anti-Asian hate in all its forms.  We also will work to make our employer accountable to protect and support Asian workers who are often subjected to abuse from both outside and within the organization. #StopAsianHate

Updated: This Sunday, March 28 at 2:00 pm.  Toronto Solidarity Rally Against Anti-Asian Hate at Nathan Phillips Square.

Library Workers: we are meeting at the first “T” in the Toronto sign at 2 pm.  Please email Emma Lee at [email protected] for more information.

Reflecting on this year’s theme: Rising Above the Storm

Excited to be attending New Librarians Symposium today! This year’s theme is Libraries and Labour: Organizing for Action. Will be talking about the organizing work Toronto #LibraryWorkers have done over the years and the challenges of the future. #NewLibSymp21 @Local4948

Libraries around the world are “thriving” during pandemic.

But is this true? Funding cuts, layoffs, under-investment abound.

Reinvest to ensure the services that library workers provide is around for years to come.
Appreciation must translate to action. https://dailymemphian.com/article/22398/how-memphis-library-system-thrived-in-the-pandemic
