Future Asian Pacific History Honors Varshini Prakash!

This week for #FutureAsianPacificHistory, we’re honoring Varshini Prakash! The co-founder and Executive Director of Sunrise Movement, a youth-led grassroots organization focusing on environmental issues, she is one of the foremost voices in climate justice. 

From leading climate strikes and sit-ins to making the Green New Deal a household name, Prakash and the Sunrise Movement have been able to completely revolutionize the way we talk about climate change, elevating it from a fringe topic to a party platform. 

For working tirelessly to literally saving the world and for always holding those in power accountable, Varshini Prakash is #FutureAsianPacificHistory.
