CAAAV: Organizing Asian Communities is the only pan-Asian organization in NYC that develops the leadership of low-income Asian immigrants and refugees towards racial, gender, and economic justice through institutional change.
With your support, CAAAV can continue:
- fighting gentrification by organizing Chinatown’s residents against large and ruthless landlords and developers;
- protecting affordable housing by advancing the Fight for Equitable Rezoning Campaign in Chinatown and the Lower East Side;
- supporting public housing residents by releasing a report on language access issues impacting pan-Asian immigrants in public housing and developing the leadership of tenants at Queensbridge Houses;
- organizing against police violence as members of Communities United for Police Reform and Peoples’ Justice for Community Control and Police Accountability coalitions;
- empowering youth leaders to engage their communities for social change.
Thank you so much for supporting our work.
