AAPI Youth on Safety, Belonging and Thriving

Wednesday, June 16, 2021 -
4:00pm to 5:15pm EDT
Add to Calendar

Join GTY, YouthTruth, and Asian-American/Pacific Islander youth leaders for an important discussion of safety, belonging and thriving amid the fallout of the pandemic, economic upheaval, racial justice uprisings, and an increase in anti-Asian racialized violence. 

AAPI youth leaders will share their stories, and YouthTruth will present survey findings from the Students Weigh In series, highlighting AAPI high school students' experiences before and during the pandemic.

Discussion will focus on concrete actions funders can take to support AAPI and other young people to thrive -- based on what young people say they need.
