Asian Pacific Islander Youth Promoting Advocacy & Leadership (AYPAL)

The Asian Pacific Islander Youth Promoting Advocacy & Leadership, or AYPAL, is based in Oakland, California.

AYPAL has developed the leadership of over 450 Youth Leaders and has engaged over 4500 young people in grassroots campaigns.  More importantly, the organization has become a vital home where youth from different schools, neighborhoods and ethnicities can gather together to learn, discuss and collectively change the adverse conditions impacting their lives.

Today, AYPAL is a leader in the education justice movement and the only organization in the state of California that organizes low-income immigrant and refugee API families around reforms in public education.
