Teach Inclusive AANHPI History in Schools
Children’s education should be inclusive and representative of all of our communities. But in New York, students aren’t seeing themselves reflected in their studies, increasing the chances of discrimination and hate. At a time when more than 40 states have introduced or passed laws to further restrict how issues of race and racism are taught, New York should start by mandating Asian American, Native Hawaiian and Pacific Islander (AANHPI) history in schools.
TELL LAWMAKERS: Combat Asian hate and support inclusive AANHPI education in schools.
