Virtual Choir #4: We Are Leaders
We Are Leaders
Activist Songbook Virtual Choir #4
Inspired by Wei Chen, Mary Yee, and Allison Budschalow
By Byron Au Yong and Aaron Jafferis
Featuring Jason Chu and Z Bell
We Are Leaders is inspired by Wei Chen and the students of South Philadelphia High School, who took a stand against anti-Asian violence, working with Chinese, Vietnamese, and Black student leaders to create lasting change in the system. By refusing to stay silent, these student leaders demonstrated that every time we come together, we win.
