AYPAL Youth Leaders Speak On OUSD Ethnic Studies Campaign

On APEX Express tonight:

It’s back-to-school season for most Bay Area students – so tonight we hear about a fierce campaign to transform the Oakland school district!  We have a full-length interview with the incredible voices of AYPAL youth leaders!  9 API youth organizers, making up the AYPAL Campaign Organizing Team, joined us in the studio to talk about their current campaign to fight to include Ethnic Studies in the Oakland Unified School District.  They speak on their work, how they got involved, and how they’re already winning successes on a completely youth-led campaign.  Also, their AYPAL adult coordinator – Armael Malinis – joins us live to give us the latest updates and tell us how to get involved.  Plus, some exciting musical selections.
