About Us

Founded in 1991, Asian Americans Advancing Justice-AAJC (Advancing Justice-AAJC) works to advance the human and civil rights of Asian Americans, and build and promote a fair and equitable society for all. To achieve our mission, we engage in research, policy advocacy, public education, community capacity-building/mobilization and litigation strategies to advance public policies that enable Asian Americans and other vulnerable communities to reach their full potential and address unfair and discriminatory structures and institutions that systematically deny Asian Americans and other vulnerable communities their civil and human rights.

Advancing Justice-AAJC is a member of the Asian Americans Advancing Justice (Advancing Justice) affiliation. With our affiliates in Chicago, San Francisco and Los Angeles, we work together as equal and independent partners, operate under one name, and strive to speak with one unified and powerful voice to promote justice, empower our communities, bring local and national constituents together, and strengthen our multi-racial democracy.

Based in Washington, D.C., Advancing Justice-AAJC has a budget of approximately $4 million and a staff of 18.
