Day 18: Migrants who belong to racialized visible groups are vulnerable to racism and hostility in various forms.
As a recent immigrant from Asia, Sun Do Hyun feels vulnerable when exposed to increasing anti-immigrant sentiment and the White nationalist movement in Canada. Today, we may speak of a migrant/refugee “crisis,” yet migration has been essential to the human experience over tens of thousands of years. “I believe that issues around the refugee crisis and global migration are not relevant to only a few countries or regions, but to all countries and continents.”
