AHSYP Needs Assessment

Hello friends!

AHSYP is doing a needs assessment survey to gauge how we can better serve those ages 12-25 in clinic, programs, and providing other services/resources. If you fall within the age range (or work with youth and young adults ages 12-25), it would be great if you can do it/pass it along!
We're trying to get as many as 1000 needs assessments done by the end of June!
Here is the link:

Our parents want to support us - sometimes they just don't have the words to do so. This author looked deeper into culture and history to find out why, and it gave her the perspective and patience to try again with talking to her mother. Great read!

Hi community, we're launching this page to help our dear friend and community member Danny Thongsy fight his deportation.

Danny currently has a final order of deportation to Laos, a country he has never set foot in, and where he has no family or support.

Recently, the US government sanctioned Laos in order to force them to take deportees. Danny is one of those who could be picked up by ICE at any moment. Like Danny, many Southeast Asians affected by deportation are refugees who arrived in the US at a young age, their families escaping war, and now the US is trying to deport them to countries they don't even know.

One of the only ways to prevent Danny's deportation is to get a pardon from Governor Newsom. Please, help sign on to a support letter to help prevent Danny's deportation! Sign here and please share with your friends: bit.ly/stand4danny

Lyrics Born explores new horizons on 'Sorry to Bother You,' 10th LP | RIFF

"At first, he tried to avoid the 'Asian American rapper' label. These days, Lyrics Born acknowledges that his ethnicity set him apart in the genre. He uses it bring attention to his journey and light to the need for more Asian American faces in hip-hop."

Lyrics Born has been an integral part of the Bay Area hip-hop community for 25 years. As he approaches the release of his 10th studio album, 'Quite A Life,' he has reflected on how he helped forge the path for Asian Americans while being plagued with reductive labels and stereotypes.
