About Asian Americans for Civil Rights and Equality

Formed in 2014, the Asian Americans for Civil Rights and Equality (AACRE) network came together as part of Chinese for Affirmative Action’s (CAA) movement building strategy in order to create a home for progressive Asian American and Pacific Islander groups and leaders working to meet the evolving needs of our disenfranchised and marginalized communities.

AACRE is comprised of 11 groups including APEX Express, the Alliance of South Asians Taking Action, Asian Refugees United, Asian Prisoner Support Committee, Chinese for Affirmative Action, Hmong Innovating Politics, Hyphen magazine, Lavender Phoenix, the Network on Religion and Justice, VietUnity, and the Visibility Project.

The groups in the network share capacity infrastructure including access to common facilities, financial management, technology, and administrative support systems. The power and potential of the network also rely on its ability to support leaders committed to developing the relationships and ethical frameworks needed to thrive.

We are committed to supporting our employees in service of our mission by providing generous benefits, which include 100% health, dental, vision, life and long-term disability insurance for employee coverage and 65% for dependent coverage; employer-funded health reimbursement account; paid time off; and a professional development stipend.
