Manhattan Beach Teen Honored for Asian-American Activism

The Redondo Beach Union High junior Jason Fong was honored on May 4th, along with 9 other Asian-Americans across the country, by the White House as a Champion of Change. The Chinese-Korean activist and blogger started the hashtag #MyAsianAmericanStory after hearing controversial remarks about Asian “anchor babies” when he was following the presidential election. The hashtag went viral, encouraging many Asian Americans to share their own stories on social media. 

We are proud of our local student Jason for starting an international conversation and pushing for change! Read the article on Jason Fong from the Daily Breeze here.
