AAPI Multicultural Festival

Sunday, May 21, 2023

12pm - 4pm

Cupertino Civic Center/Cupertino Library Plaza

AAPI SV will be holding its second annual AAPI Multicultural Festival in partnership with Asian American Parents Association, Cupertino Library Foundation, and Bay Area Youth Initiative.

The vibrant AAPI Multicultural Festival will feature local community organizations to showcase and represent their cultural identity, vendors to sell cultural wares, and dynamic performing arts groups to display a unique and creative spectacle! We hope to highlight the mosaic of Asian and Pacific Islander cultures in Silicon Valley and inspire people to take the first step in improving their communities.

Our first festival had 10 booths, more than 13 performing groups and speakers, and around 500 attendees! This year, we are aiming for even greater heights, and we invite you to join us for an afternoon of laughter and festivities!

Ethnic Studies Course

Ethnic Studies 10/21_MV Voice
Ethnic Studies 10/21_Los Altos Town Crier
Ethnic Studies 10/21_Talon

In collaboration with local Black youth organization,
Justice Vanguard, and educators and administrators,
we successfully lobbied the Mountain View-Los Altos High School Board to implement mandatory ethnic studies. The course will be a year-long, non-tracked (no Honors or AP equivalent) freshman requirement starting in 2022.

Thank you to everyone who spoke out at board meetings and supported the cause. 
Our work continues in advocating for students to be involved in the curriculum and class-development process, as well as working to implement the course in other districts.

To learn more about the specifics of our course or to get involved at your own district, view the PDF that we presented at the 2021 High Schoolers for Democrats of America Summit.
