It is no secret that anti-Asian American & Pacific Islander (AAPI) sentiment has been on the rise, resulting in many unfortunate incidents involving AAPI victims. We believe that we can address this issue at its roots by fostering a better understanding of the long-established roles of AAPI in American history with more inclusive, comprehensive education.
Currently, we are working to pass the Asian American & Pacific Islander History Inclusion Act (PA House Bill 1917) which would help incorporate AAPI history & culture into PA K-12 curriculum standards. AAPI history is American history and it is important that all our students see that in their classrooms as the world continues to diversify.
The Asian American & Pacific Islander History Inclusion Act is set to expire in December 2022.
