Educate, Engage, Activate

AAPI Heritage Festival

On Wednesday, May 17, we welcomed the community to our third celebration of AAPI heritage. In 2021 we hosted a Stop Asian Hate vigil, in 2022 we welcomed Yazhi Guo and Shin Daiko for an evening of music, and this year we enjoyed a student-led festival! These types of events are at the core of the NFSJ’s work to build community, celebrate the ethnic, racial and cultural diversity of this community, and be once again back together as a community!

The evening was created and led by students from Winchester High School — both the Asian American Club and the Chinese Culture Club — with the guidance of their advisors Ms. Wang and Ms. Plosky. In addition to a host of arts, culture, and sports stations developed by the students, and the AAPI books provided by the Winchester Public Library, the evening featured performances by the Nuwa Athletic Club and BLK Koreo Dance.

We are extremely grateful to the Commonwealth of Massachusetts Asian Pacific Islanders Commission for providing funding for this event.
