CAA: Chinese for Affirmative Action

CAA seeks to defend and promote the civil and political rights of Asian and Pacific Islander Americans within the context of advancing multiracial democracy in the United States. CAA is a nationally recognized and respected civil rights organization, advancing and protecting the rights of Asian and Pacific Islander Americans. Rooted in the Chinese American community, CAA also works within the broader Asian and Pacific Islander American community, and has forged strong alliances with other communities of color and historically disenfranchised communities to advance civil rights. Since our founding in 1969, CAA has advocated on a range of pressing social justice issues including: language access, immigrant rights, affirmative action, educational equity, workforce development for low-wage immigrant communities, and “glass ceiling” barriers. CAA’s policy work grows out of our direct service, leadership development, public education, and community building programs. CAA has also entered the national debate on critical issues for our community, such as census policy and racial profiling.
