BDC PILOt Youth program

Recently, we have all seen those of Asian descent facing an increase in seriously disturbing violence and negative and hateful remarks. As we all know, such actions are detrimental to our communities and humanity in general. We must stand together to fight against racial injustice. We, BDC, would like to express our support to those experiencing any form of racism or rejection.

TOGETHER WE STAND!!
