About Advancing Justice

Asian Americans Advancing Justice (Advancing Justice) is a national affiliation of five civil rights nonprofit organizations. Though independently led, operated and funded--we share a common mission to promote a fair and equitable society for all by working for civil and human rights that empower Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders and other underserved communities. 

Together, we fight anti-Asian hate and discrimination. 

Here are the organizations that comprise the Advancing Justice affiliation:

  • In Atlanta, Asian Americans Advancing Justice - Atlanta is an advocacy organization that serves one of the largest and most rapidly growing communities in the South.
  • In Chicago, Asian Americans Advancing Justice - Chicago  is the leading Midwest Asian American advocacy organization.
  • In Los Angeles, Asian Americans Advancing Justice Southern California, is our nation’s largest Asian American advocacy and legal service organization. 
  • In Washington, DC, Asian Americans Advancing Justice - Asian American Justice Center is the largest national Asian American policy advocacy organization.

We encourage community members who have experienced anti-Asian hate to share their experiences and report to our website, which is accessible in Chinese, Korean, and Vietnamese. Asian Americans Advancing Justice created this site in January 2017 to capture information about the increase in hate connected to the 2016 election outcome. Starting in February 2020, the overwhelmingly majority of reports involved accounts of anti-Asian harassment connected to COVID-19. Through Stand Against Hatred, we document hate crimes, harassment, and discrimination experienced by our community. As we state on the site, when people submit reports, they are aiding our efforts to monitor and push back against hate

Asian Americans Advancing Justice – Atlanta (formerly Asian American Legal Advocacy Center or AALAC) is the first non-profit law center dedicated to Asian immigrants and refugees (“Asian Americans”) in the Southeast.

The Asian Resource Hub is a free online destination that illustrates the Asian American and Pacific Islander experience within the scope of discrimination and hatred. It is a collaboration between civil right non-profits Asian Americans Advancing Justice Southern California (AJSOCAL) and Asian Americans Advancing Justice – AAJC (AAJC) and supported by Microsoft.

The Asian Resource Hub provides public data on the AAPI community by illustrating the scope of widespread anti-Asian discrimination and hate in the U.S. using storytelling narratives and the Microsoft-powered PowerBI data visualization platform based on data collected by,, the U.S. Census Bureau, FBI reports, Congressional Asian Pacific American Caucus, local law enforcement, and more sources.

The Asian Resource Hub also introduces a searchable resource directory, featuring vetted AAPI community-based organizations (CBOs) that provide low/no-cost and culturally competent and linguistically appropriate direct services. This directory makes it easier for individuals and communities to access essential resources tailored to their own languages and needs.

Some examples of services you can find in the directory include:

  • Social service support (ie: basic needs, language assistance, victims services, etc.)
  • Legal assistance
  • Mental health support
  • Opportunities to get involved in civic engagement and policy advocacy
