That's why we're making a declaration.
DeclarASIAN is a by-teens, for-teens 501(c)(3) Non-Profit Organization based in Philadelphia. We serve as a platform for young activists to advocate for Asian-American and Asian representation and empowerment.

Our philosophy is that today's generation should have an outlet for expression and the opportunity to pursue social change.
