AAPI Youth Rising
A Youth Organization Taking Small Actions to Make a Difference
AAPI Youth Rising believes in fighting for inclusive education, promoting safer and healthier communities, and uniting against hate of all forms through civic engagement, coalition building and raising our youth voices. We have over 100 Chapter Leaders in 25+ states and counting.
We came together as AAPI Youth Rising when we organized the AAPI Youth Rising Rally in 2021 after speaking out at a middle school assembly in 2020.
Join the Movement
ONE DAY OF AAPI HISTORY
The ONE DAY OF AAPI HISTORY LESSON is our lesson about the untold stories of Asians in America. Stream our lesson here. We volunteer to teach our lesson to classrooms across America. Read about our lesson at Teach for America. You can sign up here for a teach-in.
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.
Join as an AYR Chapter Leader

United against Hate-Fueled Violence
We can all be Uniters. We speak out against hate of all forms. After being recognized at the United We Stand Summit held at the White House, we partnered with the California Civil Rights Department on the launch of the California vs. Hate campaign, the California Commission on the State of Hate, and Dignity.us, an initiative led by four presidential centers.
We launch the national Uniters re-convening in April 2024. Interested in being a part of our national launch and collaborating with us? We’re seeking youth who want to make a difference one day at a time. Email us.
We believe in a world without hate. We believe in small actions. We write, create and make art. We speak out about the importance of uniting our youth communities.
For AAPNHPI Heritage Month 2023, we’re excited to launch our ONE DAY OF AAPI HISTORY VIDEO!
Are you interested in bringing a short 20-minute history lesson about Asians in American to your classrooms and organizations? Contact email@example.com.
