FRAMINGHAM – The Framingham High Asian Student Association is holding a raffle to raise funds.
The Asian Student Association is a student organization at Framingham High School that was founded to advocate and raise awareness for the normalized racism and xenophobia against the AAPI community.
“We strive to create an environment where Asian students can feel not only accepted, but understood by other peers with similar experiences. We hope that students of all ethnic backgrounds will foster a greater understanding and appreciation of Asian culture, and learn to cultivate pride with their own culture in a world that scorns and erases differences. Not only do we focus on Asian culture, we also expand upon and discuss current events and topics regarding the AAPI community,” said Framingham High Asian Student Association President Gared Wong.
“Now, more than ever, having an outlet to express varying opinions without judgment has become necessary, and our club provides students with the opportunity to do so. We have devoted student officers with a passion for these topics, spending hours planning and creating, so that the club can flourish. We encourage anyone who is interested in learning about different cultures and has a passion for speaking out on problems happening throughout the world to join,” said Wong.
“50% of the proceeds will go to the Framingham High School Asian Student Association. The other 50% will be going to the non-profit organization Asian Americans Advancing Justice,” said Wong. “The AAAJ is an organization dedicated to advocating for civil rights, providing legal services and education and building coalitions on behalf of the AAPI community.
