The inspiring youth song “We are proud to be Asian” turned the #StopAisanHate moment into a movement. It’s a movement by the youths and for the youths. It’s a movement of Asian Pride. It’s a movement calling for telling the AAPI story in school curriculum.
We can fight back by coming together. We need to build an infrastructure to support our kids’ American Identity. Our kids deserve the correct windows and mirrors so that they never have to feel anything less than Americans!
