In an open letter to school leaders in Boston, Quincy, and Malden, a coalition of Asian-American students and their supporters is urging educators to take action now to ensure their safety as a new school year begins.

Seventeen-year-old Sarah Xu, one of the six students who coauthored the letter, organized the campaign through the nonprofit Boston Chinatown Neighborhood Center.

She got the idea from a class at Boston Latin School, where she’s now a senior, called “Facing History and Ourselves.”

Shortly before Boston schools closed, the class began discussing the recent surge of anti-Asian prejudice.

In an interview with the Globe on Tuesday, Malden Public Schools superintendent John Oteri reiterated the district’s commitment to anti-racism teaching and training.
