Asian Americans In California

“Those who are happiest are those who do the most for others.”

“Those who are happiest are those who do the most for others.” Booker T. Washington

More than 9,000 anti-Asian incidents have been reported since the pandemic began ranging from racial slurs to physical assaults. Asian Americans have reported being beaten, spit on, and taunted solely because of their race. Although lawmakers, activists, and community groups have tried to push back after the initial wave of physical and verbal attacks, not enough is being done. There is a lack of awareness about the frequency and severity of anti-Asian hate crimes and a lack of a comprehensive yet nuanced approach.
AAINCA is dedicated to heightening awareness of anti-Asian hate crimes; helping victims report incidents of hate crimes; seeking out justice through civil and criminal penalties and advocating for Asian Americans who don’t know where to turn to for help. AAINCA is a national 501(c)(3) non-profit founded by community leaders with the heart, vision, and compassion to help Asian Americans who are bullied or attacked based on unique cultural, religious, and language barriers.
We provide free legal services for a wide range of legal needs. AAINCA will accompany you to immigration court hearings in a show of solidarity and to help ease the anxiety of interacting with the legal system. We offer a wide array of full and limited-scope legal representation, free counseling sessions, parenting groups, and literacy clubs for children.
Our mission is to be a voice for the Asian American community and provide greater awareness and assistance against bigotry, harassment, and violence. We strive to promote a free and just society where Asian Americans can be treated with dignity, compassion, and respect.
