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.

Women’s History Month is a celebration of women’s contributions to history, culture and society. Equal Opportunity Schools celebrates women of color, like Yuri Kochiyama, a Japanese America civil rights activist who spent her life advocating for Black, Latinx, Native American and Asian American communities. In 2014, the White House honored Kochiyama for her life’s pursuit of social justice.
