About CAA and AACRE

Chinese for Affirmative Action was founded in 1969 to protect the civil and political rights of Chinese Americans and to advance multiracial democracy in the United States. Today, CAA is a progressive, leading voice in and on behalf of the broader AAPI (Asian American and Pacific Islander) community. We advocate for systemic change that protects immigrant rights, promotes language diversity, and remedies racial and social injustice.  

In 2014, CAA helped launch the Asian Americans for Civil Rights and Equality (AACRE) network that focuses on long-term movement building, capacity infrastructure, and leadership support for Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders committed to social justice. Including CAA, there are currently 11 partnering member groups with unique strengths.  Fiscal sponsorship, administration, and operational support are provided centrally for all of these groups so they can focus on their core programs. 

More recently, CAA, along with AAPI Equity Alliance and the San Francisco State University Asian American Studies Department, launched the Stop AAPI Hate coalition to document and respond to incidents of hate at the local, state, and national levels. The Stop AAPI Hate coalition advances equity, justice, and power across AAPI communities. Our online reporting center, which has documented close to 11,000 hate incidents affecting AAPIs, has enabled us to shape conversations around anti-Asian racism; capture the attention of lawmakers; and bring a nationwide movement to life. Stop AAPI Hate also advances education justice, community safety, and civil rights for Asians Americans, Pacific Islanders, and Black, Indigenous, and People of Color in the United States.

CAA, the AACRE network, and Stop AAPI Hate are all in a significant growth phase, and this requires significant operational planning, development, and implementation of a host of new systems.

About CAA and AACRE  

Chinese for Affirmative Action was founded in 1969 to protect the civil and political rights of Chinese Americans and to advance multiracial democracy in the United States. Today, CAA is a progressive, leading voice in and on behalf of the broader AAPI (Asian American and Pacific Islander) community. We advocate for systemic change that protects immigrant rights, promotes language diversity, and remedies racial and social injustice.  

In 2014, CAA helped to launch the Asian Americans for Civil Rights and Equality (AACRE) network that focuses on long-term movement building, capacity infrastructure, and leadership support for Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders committed to social justice. Including CAA, there are currently 11 partnering member groups with unique strengths.  Fiscal sponsorship, administrative, and operational support is provided centrally for all of these groups so they can focus on their core programs. 

More recently, CAA, along with AAPI Equity Alliance and the San Francisco State University Asian American Studies Department, launched the Stop AAPI Hate coalition to document and respond to incidents of hate at the local, state, and national levels. The mission of Stop AAPI Hate is to advance equity, justice, and power by dismantling systemic racism and building a multiracial movement to end anti-Asian American and Pacific Islander hate. This is an exciting period of growth and impact for Stop AAPI Hate. Due to the extraordinary demand and support for our work, we are poised to deepen and expand our reach and engagement throughout the country.

The coalition’s current leadership team consists of six senior-level executives representing the coalition’s three founding partner organizations. Our Managing Director must have both the vision and skills to enable the coalition to adapt to growth and change. The ideal candidate demonstrates adaptability, creativity, attention to detail, ability to communicate effectively, and can engage and collaborate with a wide variety of audiences and partners. 

The SAH Managing Director serves as an air traffic controller helping to keep the leadership team and the coalition’s working teams progressing in the same direction. This position also serves as a communicator helping staff identify which critical issues require leadership attention, and ensures that leaders make the most of their limited time; that information arrives at the right point in their decision-making process; and that follow-up happens in a timely, strategic manner. A critical part of the job is exercising sound judgment on which staff and stakeholders should be involved in input and decision-making. 

In partnership with the SAH Director of Coalition Planning and Culture, this position helps build the team with talented and committed staff and ensures that each team member understands their roles and responsibilities with regard to our mission and values. They are jointly responsible for ensuring that internal communications systems are effective and meeting the evolving needs of the coalition.  

An exempt position housed at CAA, the SAH fiscal sponsor, the SAH Managing Director can work at CAA’s San Francisco office, remotely, or a combination of the two including potential access to other designated partner offices.

Stop AAPI Hate Youth Program

The Stop AAPI Hate Youth Program began the summer of 2020 when San Francisco high school students expressed a desire to support SAH’s efforts. We initiated a youth internship campaign and within a week, gathered 100 interns from across the nation. They conducted their own survey and produced a report based on 1,000 interviews. That report became the basis of Rep. Grace Meng’s bill to fund Ethnic Studies. The following school year, the interns continued their advocacy and helped the California Superintendent of Schools to send a letter to every school district within the state to address the SAH Youth Program’s concerns including mental health. Moving forward, the Youth Program builds upon this past work but primarily centers the Youth Program around training, educating and mobilizing youth to be the strong advocates for Ethnic Studies in public schools.
