And they’re not going to take it anymore! AYO is about to launch into a survey to find out more about racism in the local school systems and educational inequities in teaching (or not teaching) about Arabs.
Through the surveys, they want to answer this question– How does racist curriculum and lack of Arab histories and narratives in schools affect how youth perceive Arabs, and what is the impact on the Arab community in the Bay Area?
Hmmmmm, deep huh? Gotcha thinkin…
Stay tuned for more news once AYO hits the streets and the schools! And for all the Arab youth out there ages 14-22, hit us up and come through to our next meeting– Sunday March 4th at 2pm.
