Celebration of Justice provides vital resources to help CAA continue building on our core strategies to advocate, to serve, to engage, and to build coalitions and movements.

This year’s Celebration of Justice is occurring as CAA has stepped up to lead national efforts against anti-Asian racism in all its forms including through Stop AAPI Hate, which we co-founded with allies A3PCON and the Department of Asian American Studies at San Francisco State University.

We also continue to defend and directly serve our most vulnerable immigrant communities, build a stronger progressive voice in Chinese language online spaces, and advance solidarity efforts towards a more equitable and just democracy.
