Teach Asian American Stories (TAAS) is an initiative fueled by AAPI Montclair to help support the implementation of New Jersey’s historic AAPI curriculum law. We are committed to helping New Jersey educators realize this law’s promise for our 1 million public school students–in every school, in every classroom, and for every student.

Support Our New Jersey AAPI History Map

Did you know that there were Asian Americans who enlisted to fight in the Revolutionary War? Or that Asian Americans have a long history—over 250 years!—of engaging in solidarity and resistance in New Jersey?

We’ve been curious about our shared history too, and that’s why AAPI New Jersey is thrilled to present this curated map showcasing the stories of Asian Americans who have helped shaped New Jersey. 

We are giving away 1,000 copies to display in classrooms across the state. Learn more about how you can sign up to receive a map or donate a map to a favorite teacher!

Your support can catalyze generational change.

While the historic AAPI Curriculum Bill was passed with bipartisan support, implementation is the responsibility of each of New Jersey’s 600 school districts. Like other unfunded curriculum mandates, this law and similar efforts across the country won’t succeed without the partnership of educators, civic leaders, and the philanthropic community. 

Please consider supporting the incredible, mostly volunteer-led work of our organization by making a tax-deductible contribution today.

Major support for Teach Asian American Stories is provided by Asian Americans Advancing Justice.
