About Asian Americans Advancing Justice-Atlanta
Asian Americans Advancing Justice-Atlanta is the first nonprofit legal advocacy organization dedicated to protecting the civil rights of Asian Americans, Native Hawaiian, Pacific Islander (AANHPI) and Arab, Middle Eastern, Muslim, and South Asian (AMEMSA) communities in Georgia and the Southeast. We envision a social movement in which communities of color are fully empowered, active in civic life, and working together to promote equity, fair treatment, and self determination for all.
Founded in 2010 as the Asian American Legal Advocacy Center (AALAC), our organization became part of the Asian Americans Advancing Justice affiliation in 2014. Since then, we have re-organized our work into four major strategies: Policy Advocacy, Organizing & Civic Engagement, Impact Litigation, and Legal Services.
About The Civic Engagement and Organizing Team
The Civic Engagement and Organizing (CEO) team aims to build a sustainable, community-centered movement to affect deep, long-term shifts in power, behavior, and culture through community building and education, leadership development, issue-based and electoral campaigns, and multicultural, multiracial coalition building. Our civic engagement efforts include working with community partners to make sure Georgia’s Asian American and immigrant communities have all of the in-language information and support they need to vote successfully. Our organizing work focuses on building a strong and principled community that mobilizes for immigrant rights, racial justice, queer and trans justice, and more. We do this through political education, autonomous organizing, issue organizing, and leadership development.
