What #HealthNotHate stands for

#HealthNotHate is a national movement inspired to combat systemic racism. We are a group of marketers, media professionals, creatives and business people who have come together in courage, collaboration, and volunteerism to address the anti-racism issue. By bringing together our collective networks in marketing, media, film and television, we created a national campaign that placed racism, and the error of its ways, front and centre, garnering national attention and exposure. Our campaign began with the anti-Asian racism we were seeing around Covid-19 and how people were blaming the Chinese community, and anyone who looked Asian, for the Coronavirus. We needed to dispel this perception by stating that Covid-19 is a health issue, not a race issue, and that the hate aimed at Asians was misplaced and misguided since individuals of Asian heritage didn’t cause the virus but they are subject to inflammatory remarks and attacks as if they are the perpetrators. #HealthNotHate was created to change the narrative and to create awareness that the virus affects us all, regardless of ethnicity. In fact, the virus doesn’t discriminate. Most importantly, #HealthNotHate is making a statement that racism is wrong and unacceptable in any setting. Since the outbreak of Covid-19, racist incidents against the Asian community has increased eight-fold in Canada, and with the social unrest in the United States around the killing of George Floyd and the surge in Black Lives Matter, the Pandora’s Box of racism has been opened and cannot be closed. #HealthNotHate is leading a national movement to bring awareness and change attitudes on racism and racist behaviour, and how physical, mental, emotional, spiritual and community health are the conditions for social inclusion and equality.

Practice Social Distancing, Not Ethnic Distancing.

At a time when the physical health of our communities is at stake, there’s no need for racial discrimination to enter the conversation. Not now, not ever. With Covid-19, we are fighting a common enemy with our collective welfare at the top of our minds. That’s yours and mine.

Our families, our friends, our neighbours. Let’s heal together during this pandemic and not inflict another wound to ourselves in the process. Practice social distancing, not ethnic distancing. Because, it’s a health issue, not a race issue.
