Members of Make Us Visible NJ speak about the organization and its successful effort to mandate teaching Asian American and Pacific Islander history in New Jersey’s public schools. Via Zoom; register here.

Make Us Visible NJ is a coalition of students, parents, educators and community members who advocated for the inclusion of AAPI history in the K-12 curriculum of New Jersey public schools.

MUVNJ Board Members Dr. Kani Ilangovan (who is also a board member of Not In Our Town Princeton), NYU Professor Ying Lu, New Jersey educator Sima Kumar and student advocate Christina Huang will discuss how they led a statewide coalition that advocated for the passage of the AAPI Curriculum Bill, which mandates the inclusion of AAPI history in New Jersey public schools, and the bill establishing the Department of Education Commission on Asian American Heritage.
