Affirming Asian American Identities: Integrating Asian American Content

Thursday, September 26th at 4:30 p.m. via Zoom


Wisconsin educators are familiar with Act 31, a law signed in 1989 requiring Wisconsin schools provide “an understanding of human relations, particularly with regard to American Indians, Black Americans, and Hispanics.” This law neglected to include one of the fastest growing segments of our state’s population. Since 2000 Wisconsin’s Asian American residents have grown by 82%, and Wisconsin is the home to the 3rd largest community of Hmong Americans in the country.


Recently Governor Evers signed an update to Act 31 into law requiring Asian American and Hmong history and culture be taught in Wisconsin’s public schools. The WEA Academy teamed with a diverse group of Asian American educators to create a workshop that will provide insight and instructional resources to support Wisconsin teachers as they integrate Asian American and Hmong content into their instruction.
