AAPI Youth Rising
A Youth Organization Taking Little Actions to Make a Difference
One/180 Pledge and Upcoming Events
One/180 Pledge for AAPI History + Culture – Sign the Pledge!
Asian American History is American History. Yet only a few Asian American Pacific Islander stories are taught in K-12 U.S. schools. With increasing awareness of the invisibility of AAPI histories, it’s more important now than ever to make our voices heard and sign the One/180 Pledge for AAPI History and Culture in our schools.
Why One/180? Out of the standard 180 instructional days in the average student’s school year, we are asking that at least one of those days be dedicated to AAPI History + Culture.
