AAPI Individuals Rising Up

In Asian culture, individuals are often encouraged to be obedient, quiet, and assimilate. However, a number of activists broke this mold and used their voices to bring important issues to the forefront and overcome the oppression facing the AAPI community at the time. Their stories of rising up to inspire us during these challenging times are documented below. This is by no means an exhaustive list. It has a small sample of AAPI activists. We hope to continue to add to this list in the future.
