Building the Capacity of Our Community

In Advancing Justice - LA’s work on many issues (e.g., Census, citizenship, redistricting, heath care reform, etc.), Advancing Justice - LA partners with Asian American, Native Hawaiian, and Pacific Islander (NHPI) community organizations. Some of these organizations are in Los Angeles or Orange County, but many are located throughout California, from San Diego to the Central Valley to San Francisco. Many are small, with only a few staff and limited budgets.
