Asian American Justice Center (AAJC)
The Asian American Justice Center’s (AAJC) mission is to advance the human and civil rights of Asian Americans through advocacy, public policy, public education and litigation. The Asian American Justice Center is 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, immigrant rights, immigration, language access, television diversity and voting rights. Its expertise is widely acknowledged in the media, by public and by lawmakers at the very highest tiers of government.
The Asian American Justice Center promotes civic engagement by empowering Asian American with the tools and support to best participate in the democratic process, while shaping the policies and programs that most affect their communities at the local, regional and national level. AAJC works to forge strong and safe communities by building community leadership and combating hate crimes, while promoting social understanding between the diverse racial and ethnic groups we represent, as well as their neighboring communities. AAJC is committed to creating and inclusive society by helping Asian American and other minority groups to successfully challenge discriminatory barriers to fair and equal access to justice in the courts, jobs in the marketplace as well as government, programs, benefits and forms of assistance at every level.
