Petition Action

Fund additional support for victims of COVID19 racism and anti-racism programmes

Petition Details

Since COVID19, UK hate crimes against East and South East Asians (ESEA) rose significantly in some areas. We all suffer from the virus’ effects, but ESEA are also targeted by unprovoked verbal assaults, threats and violent attacks. This even includes our NHS staff. The Government must act now.

Additional Information

The Government must protect our local communities, including ESEA. As concerned citizens and allies, we stand together and ask the Government to not just condemn recent racist attacks, but provide support funds for impacted individual and business victims and organisations tackling COVID19-fuelled racism.
