What is the Make Us Visible Florida Coalition?

The Make Us Visible Florida Coalition is part Make Us Visible comprised of our sister chapters in Connecticut, Maryland, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Rhode Island, and Pennsylvania.


DONATE TO HELP OUR ORGANIZATION INCLUDE AAPI HISTORY!


In Florida, we are advocating for the inclusion of Asian American stories in the K-12 Curriculum of our public schools. Our Coalition is comprised of Florida Educators, Students, Parents, and Community Advocates!

To accomplish this, we are pushing conversations on:

  • Bipartisan collaboration in support of Asian American communities in Florida.

  • Thoughtful and equitable inclusion of Asian Pacific Islander Desi American histories, cultures, and identities in Education.

  • State-wide workshops and resources that are available for educators to partake in expanding their capacity for Asian American lesson plans.

  • Empowerment for Asian American communities in Florida as it pertains to representation in education, thorough leadership trainings, and community building traditions between our respective racial identities.
