Across the Lens: Stories of You and Me in 2020
In lieu of our annual celebration and fund-raising gala this November, Across U-hub is working with our young people to produce a special e-publication entitled, Across the Lens: Stories of You and Me in 2020. This e-book, which will be published in the next few months on different social media platforms, covers stories about unsung heroes in our Chinese Canadian community during COVID-19. These heroes are mostly individuals who have been hit hard by the crisis – for example, essential workers, restaurant owners and small businesspersons. With training and mentorship, our young volunteers conduct interviews and capture through their eyes the narratives of how these heroes have weathered and braved through waves of COVID-19 while still caring for the well-being of people around them, including family members, employees, etc.
