As we all self isolate to keep safe during this pandemic we definitely still need to keep connected. We wish to show solidarity with the Chinese community who are facing racism and violence since the outbreak of the corona virus began. We want to spread love and hope and so we are holding an online Peace of Cake.
Asma says “Get ready to join us for virtual Peace of Cake on Facebook live this Sunday at 4pm in Solidarity with the Chinese Community who has been experiencing increasing level of Covid-19-related racism and xenophobia. Every day we are hearing about new incidents and many businesses are having to close due to ignorant misinformation. Racism is a virus, not the people of any particular race. We know that there are many of you out there who do not identify with such xenophobic acts and behaviours – so this Sunday, please join us by going to our page Peace of Cake and we will be doing a live broadcast where you can send your messages of peace and love to our Chinese brothers and sisters in humanity. Our special Guests include Edmond, Jabez and Jenny who have been working with communities and Jenny will be introducing Chinese cakes with special significance. We will join her with our favourite or traditional cake”
