The Advancing Justice conference is the nation’s largest conference focused on Asian American and Pacific Islander social justice. It is organized by one of my favourite non-profits, Asian Americans Advancing Justice.
The mission of Asian Americans Advancing Justice is to promote a fair and equitable society for all by working for civil and human rights and empowering Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders and other underserved communities.
Every year, AAAJ invites prominent AAPI activists and civil rights advocates to their annual conference to help foster a broad conversation on social justice within our community. In past years, the conference has hosted included Kiran Ahuja, the Honorable Denny Chin, Rep. Judy Chu, Sen. Dick Durbin, Rep. Mike Honda, Harold Koh, Norman Y. Mineta, Tom Perez, Ai-jen Poo, Gautam Raghavan, Jose Antonio Vargas and more.
