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.
In 2023, we worked to pass the Asian American & Pacific Islander History Inclusion Act (PA House Bill 799) which will help to incorporate AAPI history & culture into PA K-12 curriculum standards. AAPI history is American history and it is
important that all our students see this history in their classrooms.
The Asian American & Pacific Islander History Inclusion Act was introduced to the Pennsylvania State House by Representative Patty Kim on March 30, 2023.
Please sign our new petition and write to your legislators supporting HB 799. Organizations can reach out to us if they are interested in co-sponsoring our efforts.
