Earlier today, following another hate incident at her school, Jaslene had the honor to speak to the principal of Burlingame High School and present AAPI Youth Rising’s mission and achievements to her. Jaslene explained the effects educating people on the narratives of Asian Americans and other races and how said education is key to fighting racism found in all communities, including diverse ones like Burlingame High School. The values and beliefs of impressionable youth can be heavily impacted by their environment. With our goal to educate and speak up, AYR will continue to make safe spaces like Burlingame High School even more welcoming. Go panthers!
