Welcome to Asian/Pacific Islander Student Union
Our mission is to focus on students learning more about their identity, discussing social issues, and building a strong community! Everyone is welcome, regardless of ethnicity. We all should be equally represented at ECHS, a school promoting diversity and unity. We believe everyone should know each side of each other's stories, cultures, and histories. This club will be a safe space for people to not only learn but to build friendships and experience.

We have a voice, and it’s important that we use it. It’s also just as important to speak out for the unheard. Take the time to read up on these issues and share them if you can! It takes just seconds, and can make a big difference. Even if you feel as if these issues don’t directly effect you, they make a big impact on others around you.
Support the Black Lives Matter movement
Educate yourself. This movement isn’t over because it isn’t “trendy” anymore. Keep supporting, learning and sharing.
Demand the removal of EXOS in Southeast Asia
“In the Vietnam War era conflict, the U.S. dropped millions of tons of ordnance on Laos, Vietnam, and Cambodia. While the war has been over for decades, its deadly remnants continue to kill civilians to this day. Tell Congress to end this tragic legacy and ensure that an old war no longer claims new victims.”
Diversify our Narrative
“It is critical that our school systems capitalize on the potential of literature to educate America’s youth on the very real, systemic injustices that exist in our society— and more importantly, how they can help remedy them by being actively anti-racist.”
How to support Yemen
“Yemen is the largest humanitarian crisis in the world, with more than 24 million people – some 80 per cent of the population – in need of humanitarian assistance, including more than 12 million children.
Since the conflict escalated in March 2015, the country has become a living hell for the country’s children. Now, with COVID-19 spreading, Yemen is facing an emergency within an emergency. Sanitation and clean water are in short supply. Only half of health facilities are functioning, and many that remain operational lack basic equipment like masks and gloves, let alone oxygen and other essential supplies to treat the coronavirus. Many health workers are receiving no salaries or incentives.”
