Asian Americans Advancing Justice | AAJC is a national organization working to empower Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders (AAPI) to participate in our democracy and fight for civil and human rights. Through public education, community organizing, litigation and policy development, we advocate for an America in which all Americans are able to equally benefit from, and contribute to, the American dream.
With our Advancing Justice affiliates in Chicago, Los Angeles, San Francisco and Atlanta, we have enacted a sweeping range of programs on critical national issues that enrich, enhance and serve our communities all across the country.
We are one of the nation's leading experts on issues of importance to the Asian American community including: affirmative action, anti-Asian violence prevention/race relations, census, immigrants' rights, immigration, language access, television diversity and voting rights. Our expertise is widely acknowledged: in the media, by the public and lawmakers at the very highest tiers of government.
