Our Goals

Fight Racism

We are alarmed by the record number of hate crimes directed against Asian Americans as a result of COVID-19, geopolitical issues or any other factors. We are committed to developing innovative programs to address racism, discrimination and prejudice towards Asian Americans and other diverse groups in the US.

Increase Representation

Despite being the fastest-growing racial or ethnic group in the US with a population of over 23 million, Asian Americans lack visibility in American politics, corporations, media/culture, arts, sports, and other communities. We, along with our partners, are working to increase Asian-American voter turnout, support Asian-American leaders, and showcase Asian-American culture and influencers.

Provide Resources

We provide important data and information to both Asian American and broader communities so they will have a greater appreciation of Asian American issues, topics, cultures, and histories.
