‪The Covid-19 pandemic has seen an increase in hate crime towards some members of the East Asian community in the UK. Pek-San Tan is based in London and is co-founder of Covid-19 Anti-Racism Group (CARG).  She is also head of press for the London Chinatown Chinese Association.

‪Pek-San invites you to explore the association between this pandemic and racism. She encourages you to think about the effect on the East Asian community from a range of perspectives.  She also encourages you to explore what lessons could be learnt from the response to Covid-19 in 2020 and challenges you to questions how society could prevent surges of racial discrimination during both this and potential future pandemics. ‬
