At KIPP SoCal we celebrate Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month to affirm and learn more about the AAPI community, highlighting the people, history, and achievements that have made a positive impact in our country. 
 

We believe the purpose of education is for liberation, and that our shared liberation is intertwined across communities.  We reject the erasure of AAPI experiences from the larger narrative of American life and believe that as the stories of the AAPI community are understood and highlighted, we all rise and move toward realizing our purpose.

Through this celebration, we educate ourselves and share knowledge about the rich diversity within the AAPI community.  We provide counternarratives to harmful stereotyping of the AAPI community and work to understand its impact on creating division, seeking to promote allyship across all communities.

Through this work, we create an environment where KIPPsters appreciate the beauty and strength of Asian and Pacific Islander culture, celebrate differences, find joy in the process of learning about something that may be new, and find inspiration in understanding the interconnectedness of liberation for all people.

Stories We Love

In celebration of the many stories we hope to share and tell across our Asian American and Pacific Islander communities, this month, our team members will also read aloud some of their favorite stories that reflect the AAPI experience every #ShelfieSunday! Be sure to check them out on our social feeds or you can enjoy them anytime on our KIPP SoCal Night Reads portal here
