AAPI Youth Action Rally

June 26, 2021 | Thank you to @aapiyouthaction for organizing June’s inspirational rally in Pasadena. It’s uplifting to see other middle school youth taking action to speak up for our community. AAPI Youth Rising was honored to speak alongside trailblazers @repjudychu, @PasadenaMayorGordo, #senatorportantino, Susie Woo Associate Professor of American Studies at California State University, Lieutenant Anthony Burgess, AAPI Youth Action organizer Sophie Pang and local youth including @626speakout’s Alina Wong. So also to @ash_citrus for marching alongside us. Together, we’re making positive change in our communities. Watch for our reel for the events of the rally!

Little Actions Make a Difference

May 26, 2021 | Each day, we at AAPI Youth Rising are raising our voices and taking actions to create positive change in the world. Just some of the work we’ve done this month includes: Making impactful artwork to spread awareness of key issues in our community. Rallying our community members, schools, and teachers to pledge to teach diverse histories + stories. Registering people to vote. Speaking out about the issues affecting us as youth. Consider taking these actions as well to make a difference!
