DDSB Statement on Anti-Asian Racism

Posted On Thursday March 18, 2021

Asian members of our community and across Canada have been experiencing an increase in racist acts over the past year. The Durham District School Board stands united against anti-Asian racism and discrimination, no matter where it occurs. 

Any acts of anti-Asian racism violate our commitment to learning environments that are free from discrimination and have no place in a school or community. We are unwavering in our responsibility to create, support and ensure safe spaces for Asian members of our community throughout the system.
