Thank you A3PCON, CAAM, CPAF, PACE LA, and Trybe, for your immense contributions and advocacy on behalf of the AAPI community.
The Asian Pacific Policy and Planning Council (A3PCON) is a coalition of community-based organizations that advocates for the rights and needs of the Asian and Pacific Islander American (APIA) Community in the greater Los Angeles area, with a particular focus on low income, immigrant, refugee and other disadvantaged sectors of the population. A3PCON is supporting the fight against AAPI racism during Covid-19 by creating the Stop AAPI Hate report center. They encourage all who have witnessed or experienced micro-aggressions, bullying, harassment, hate speech, or violence to file an incident report​ so that we can better respond and prevent future incidents.

Center for the Pacific Asian Family (CPAF) is recognized nationally for our pioneering work in domestic violence, sexual assault and child abuse services within the Los Angeles Asian Pacific Islander (API) community. We created the first multi-lingual 24-hour helpline assisting API survivors of domestic violence and sexual assault in the nation. We opened the first emergency shelter and the first transitional program specialized in serving API survivors.
We provide a wide range of comprehensive services, focusing on the needs of survivors who seek to establish independent, violence-free lives. Our services are free of charge, conducted in many API languages.
