Targeting Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) students and youth on campuses and in communities around the country, the Asian American Justice Center (AAJC) will address issues of racial inequities through SCORE, an inter-ethnic project promoting racial equity and racial healing.
Specific SCORE activities will work to: Build a Student and Youth Network - creating an online forum for project participants to make connections, build relationships and begin to have discussions about issues of importance to them and to their communities; Develop a Youth Advisory Council - identifying racial equity issues that are important to youth, such as racially motivated bullying. AAJC will also work with the Council to determine what types of events – discussions, presentations, video screenings etc. – will best engage youth and encourage them to have discussions about difficult race-related issues; Provide Resources – including toolkits with fact sheets, talking points and resource lists for distribution at events; and to Solicit Youth Projects - for example, students might submit a YouTube video with short interview of students and youth who participated in an event, talking about what they discussed together and learned from one another. All student projects will be posted to the AAJC website and featured on AAJC's social networking sites so that other students and youth can share and learn from them. AAJC hopes that the projects will also inspire other students and youth to get involved in SCORE and work toward racial equity in their own schools and communities.
