EOS Celebrates AAPI Heritage Month by paying tribute to Patsy Mink

Today’s AAPI Heritage Month shoutout goes to Patsy Mink. In 1964, Mink was the first woman of color elected to the U.S. House of Representatives. During her decades-long Congressional career, Mink introduced the Early Childhood Education Act, the Elementary and Secondary Education Act and was a co-author for Title IX, a law that advanced gender equity within federal funding policies for education- later renamed the Patsy T. Mink Equal Opportunity in Education Act in her honor.

Join us in honoring Patsy Mink by leaving a tribute on our social media channels @EqualOppSchools.
