AUSD Students Take Stand Against Racism, Bullying

Alhambra , CA

The PSA video featuring AUSD students runs less than a minute. That it came out last week during a time of reflection, non-violent protest and unrest was a coincidence.

But its message calling out racial hatred and bullying has had unexpected resonance for the times we are living in.

The idea for the video came some weeks ago when there was a marked increase in race-based bullying related to the COVID-19 pandemic being reported around Southern California.

The participating students were picked by the principals of the five AUSD high schools. The video was produced and distributed by AUSD staff.

In a statement that AUSD released with the video, Superintendent Denise R. Jaramillo said:

“As one of the most richly diverse school districts in the nation, ALHAMBRA UNIFIED is dedicated to inclusion and equality and deplores racial hatred and bigotry. We are stronger together. “

The cast, in order of appearance, includes Asia Primicias, Independence High School; Ryan Chow, Mark Keppel High School; Aikia Haggerty, Alhambra High School; Joey Solano, San Gabriel High School; Ives Morales, San Gabriel High School; Tarynn Bryant-Hawkins, Mark Keppel High School and Sophia Olmeda, Alhambra High School.
