In 2020, there was a rise in violence and hatred against the Asian American and Pacific Islander community. The St. Cloud Elementary School community came together in solidarity to stand up and support their Asian American and Pacific Islander neighbors. St. Cloud Elementary school students wrote this book to teach others how to be an upstander against all forms of hatred.
The artwork in this book was inspired by our Solidarity Storytime discussion related to the books Eyes That Kiss in the Corners by Joanna Ho and My Footprints by Bao Phi and created by St. Cloud families.
