Vancouver will be the site of simultaneous Stop Anti-Asian Hate rallies across Canada.

Karmina Cordero, an anti-Asian hate advocate from Burnaby, said the rally will be held on Sunday.

She is 24-years-old.

Last week, Vancouver Police said there has been a 717 per cent increase in anti-Asian hate crimes in 2020 compared to 2019.

For the first time ever, Cordero said she’s felt unsafe especially reading statistics and headlines over the past few months.

People will be gathering outside the Vancouver Art Gallery around 2:00 p.m.

She said: I think the local rally is a great opportunity for people of Asian descent and allies. We hope to see anyone who wants to speak against the rise of hate crimes impacting our community.

She said: I truly believe this is a chance to really bring a community together. We’re all part of the city, we’re multicultural. That’s what really makes up Canada.

She said: I’m just staying home — kind of like a birdcage feeling. I just don’t want to be out there because I just don’t know when and what will happen.
