About Us

Step UP AA was founded in 2020 by two immigrant girls after their high school graduation.

Growing up facing racism and microaggressions, they took initiative to educate on topics that are not addressed enough in our school systems such as BIPOC history, activism and anti-racism.

We Are Step Up Anti-Racist Association….
