Make Us Visible activates and empowers local communities to build curriculum and advocate for the integration of Asian American contributions, experiences, and histories in K-12 classrooms.


All it takes is one conversation to start a movement. Whether at the dinner table or on a walk, we encourage you to share your stories with each other and be the voice your community needs. To make us visible, it begins with you.


Our work is largely driven by people who never thought they would get involved in the political process. From holding rallies to engaging with legislators in one-on-one meetings, advocacy takes shape in various forms.


No matter where you are in the process, curriculum integration can begin anytime. We have built relationships with teachers, students, parents, and administrators through ongoing projects to help guide you along the way.

Our Vision

Our goal is to provide every community with the support and resources necessary for them to begin their conversations on Asian American history.

State Chapters

Not having Asian Americans seen in our curriculum sends a message — it sends a message to me: I'm invisible. That I don't matter.

Christina Huang

MUV NJ high school student

As the adoptive parent of a Vietnamese American son, I believe that is important to his identity and self esteem to include Asian Pacific American Studies in his school curriculum.

I really feel as an educator that ignorance needs to be fought with knowledge and knowledge is power.

Our state chapters continue to be 100% volunteer-driven and have successfully passed state-wide education bills, empowered Asian Americans to serve in local public office, and strengthened communities across districts and states.
