AAPI Community Heroes Mural Project – unveiling in Chinatown, SF over Lunar New Year 2022!
AAPI Youth Rising’s Mina and Aashi were so honored to serve on a panel of judges including AAPI Local Community Heroes, Rev. Norman Fong, Cathy Lam from Chinatown CDC, former BOE Eric Mar, Josephine Chew from Wells Fargo Foundation and Caroline Cabading from Manilatown.
We spent Saturday, September 25th at CCCSF’s Ross Alley community space where we deliberated about who we would like to see represented on the AAPI Community Heroes Mural Project. We believe that the strongest way to celebrate our differences is to learn about our histories and heroes, including the many nominations submitted by over 100 Bay Area Schools. Thank you CCCSF and Wells Fargo Foundation for this incredible opportunity!
After we finalized deliberations, the AAPI Youth Rising team: Mina, Aashi, Anna, Bee, Charlee and newest member Kevin, all toured CCCSF’s art exhibition – WOMEN我們: From Her to Here. The exhibit is up through December, 2021. Go check it out!
