The AAPI Youth Board speaks out today - October 1 - please join us for the street renaming ceremony of "Vicha Ratanapakdee Way" to honor the legacy of 84-year old Thai Grandpa Vicha, who tragically passed on Jan. 30 2021. His daughter Monthanus Ratanapakdee carries on his legacy to pursue justice. 

Join us in-person or livestream and hear from Monthanus, @amandangocnguyen, @danieldaekim and the AYR youth board as we speak to honor Grandpa Vicha.

We join 25 AAPI groups to urge @GavinNewsom to sign #AB2596, making Lunar New Year a state holiday in California! Lunar New Year has a 4000 year history, yet it has never been recognized as a holiday in California. The bill by @aimhighgetlow is on Gov. Newsom's desk and must be signed this week. 
Today we had our monthly meeting! Our board members, chapter leaders, and ambassadors came together to go over future plans and fresh new ideas. We are looking forward to an exciting new school year!

Today we celebrate what it means to be Asian American youth and we also raise our voices for our future. Today’s Unity March is a multicultural event to advance socioeconomic and cultural equity, racial justice and solidarity. Our diversity gives us strength and we as youth ask everyone to make this mission part of our every day. To everyone marching, we send our love.

Halmunee is our story. Hear the first prime time show covering our AANHPI stories. It’s about time. Thank you @soulofanation for making this a reality.
