Hosted by Asian Americans Advancing Justice, the Advancing Justice Conference is the largest national conference focusing on civil rights and social justice issues as they affect Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders. Asian Americans Advancing Justice began the conference nine years ago to provide a forum where the AAPI community and our allies can strategize and mobilize to make lasting impact on the issues we care about.
