EOS Celebrates AAPI Heritage Month by paying tribute to Yuji Ichioka

Equal Opportunity Schools celebrates Asian American Pacific Islander Heritage Month by paying tribute to Yuji Ichioka, an American historian and civil rights activist best known for his work in Asian American studies. As an adjunct professor, he coined the term “Asian American.” Ichioka helped establish the Asian American studies program at UCLA, and with his wife, founded the Yuji Ichioka and Emma Gee Endowment for Social Justice and Immigration Studies at UCLA’s Asian American Studies Center.

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