CAA – Chinese for Affirmative Action

CAA is 50 Years Strong

Chinese for Affirmative Action has been vigilant in the demand for social justice since 1969. We have responded to a system that has rendered us and others invisible, voiceless, and without power. With five decades of civil rights achievements, we know the struggle is not new, and we know how to win.

OUR ISSUE AREAS

IMMIGRANT RIGHTS

Effective immigrant rights work means providing full access to critical legal services as well as robust advocacy to protect the dignity and fair treatment of all immigrants.

ECONOMIC JUSTICE

A just society requires all communities to have sustainable employment and economic opportunities that grow shared community wealth and equity.

LANGUAGE DIVERSITY

Equal access to public services regardless of language ability is a civil right and also advances a world in which language diversity and pluralism is embraced and valued.

EDUCATION EQUITY

From pre-K to higher education, equity means racially diverse public schools, colleges, and universities that are universal, high-quality, no-cost, and tuition-free.

CENSUS 2020

An accurate and complete Census count protects the political representation and fair share of public resources for communities of color and immigrants who have been disenfranchised.

COMMUNITY JUSTICE

Racial profiling, national security scapegoating, and mass incarceration must be replaced with systems that humanize and protect the safety of all people.
