About APIFS

The Asian Pacific Islander Freedom School is a groundbreaking grassroots effort of community-based organizations and activists in the Pacific Northwest to mobilize and empower youth.
Inspired by the work of the Tyree Scott Freedom School, the API Freedom School will target API youth — with special outreach to recent immigrants, refugees and low-income students — through a curriculum focused on diverse API history, art, culture and critical contemporary social issues using a broad-based anti-oppression approach.
Set to launch in July 2011, the week-long APIFS will provide a safe, dynamic learning space for API youth to learn from local API community leaders. The APIFS will build strong inter-community and -generational connections to grow the next generation of API community leaders, and expand the sustainability of larger social justice movement work.
