"...the great humanistic and historical task of the oppressed: to liberate themselves
and their oppressors as well."
- Paulo Freire
Stacy Yung and Virginia Nguyen are history teachers with over 30 years of combined teaching experience. They are leaders in diversity, equity, inclusion, and allyship in Southern California and have trained thousands of educators. In response to the March 2021 murder of six Asian women, and the increased awareness of anti-Asian hate, they created Educate to Empower. Together they are creating and curating resources and hosting workshops for educators on topics of DEI and AAPI. They believe that educators committed to antiracism can change the world.
"Thank you SO much. You have no idea the "ah-ha" moments I have had through this
process. I'm so inspired by educators and hopeful for our students/the future.
This feels SO purposeful and I feel so supported by this group in my personal
growth as well as grateful to hear the stories and growth of others."
