AAPI Youth Rising

A Youth Organization Taking Small Actions to Make a Difference

About Us

Our Mission

We believe in taking small actions to make positive change in our communities. We came together in March 2021 when we organized a 1,200+ person rally to bring awareness to the increase in xenophobia against Asians in America. We continue to speak out to make a difference.

Join the Movement


The ONE DAY OF AAPI HISTORY LESSON is our lesson about the untold stories of Asians in America. Curious? Sign up here. We volunteer to teach our lesson to classrooms across America. Read about our lesson at Teach for America.

Join as an AYR Chapter Leader

Sign the ONE/180 Pledge

The ONE/180 pledge asks our schools and teachers to teach at least one day of Asian American history and culture during the school year. Out of the 180 instructional days that we receive, we’re asking for just one day. Sign the pledge here!

Our Work

We came together as AAPI Youth Rising when we organized the AAPI Youth Rising Rally in 2021. We believe in fighting for inclusive education, promoting safer and healthier communities, civic engagement, coalition building and raising our youth voices.
