Black Lives Matter. An Open Letter from Asian Pacific Islander American Education Leaders.

Leading Educators CEO Chong-Hao Fu and a group of Asian Pacific Islander American and Asian American education leaders released a statement in support of Black Lives Matters in light of recent aggressions that took the lives of Breonna Taylor, George Floyd, Ahmaud Arbery, Dreasjon “Sean” Reed, David McAtee, and Tony McDade among too many others. In the letter, they commit to anti-racist action stating:

“We stand united as a group of Asian and Pacific Islander American (APIA*) education leaders committed to learning and working in solidarity with other marginalized groups and antiracist communities. We must fight against white supremacy and disrupt acts of racism — in public education and indeed in our own communities.”
