Mission: The mission of the asian americans advancing justice-aajc (aajc) is to advance civil and human rights for asian americans and to build and promote a fair and equitable society for all.
Programs: Community partners: created to build the capacity and leadership of asian american communities, aajc works hand-in-hand with community based organizations to conduct workshops and trainings on various issues of importance to local, regional and national partners. The community partners network, which has expanded to include over 100 community partners in 32 states and washington, dc, provides a critical link allowing aajc to target underserved asian american populations.
litigation: aajc participates in key civil rights cases, including through amicus briefs to the supreme court and by providing support in various lawsuits and circuit court cases, that protect the rights of asian americans and other communities of color. Through our various litigation efforts, we have advocated for immigrant rights, affordable healthcare, voting rights, and affirmative action.
