We promote equal protection by ensuring that civil and human rights of all Americans are recognized and protected.
Affirmative Action and Equal Opportunity
We work to preserve the consideration of race as a factor in admissions in higher education, and to prevent Asian Americans from being used as a wedge group.
We advocate for the elimination of language barriers in government services, including improvements in the provision of interpretation services and translated documents for limited English proficient (LEP) individuals.
In our ongoing fight against bigotry and the hate crimes it breeds, we monitor federal hate crimes legislation and push for tougher laws to ensure justice for these heinous acts. We work with partners in the Arab, Middle Eastern, Muslim, and South Asian communities to better respond to increased discrimination and harassment against individuals from those communities.
Our education system remains inequitable for communities of color and other marginalized groups. We work to promote educational equity for the nation’s diverse Asian American communities and to protect the civil and human rights of all students and families.
