Orange County Community Advisory Council

In 2016, Advancing Justice-LA launched an additional leadership group in Orange County -- the Orange County Community Advisory Council (OC CAC), whose main focus is to build a strong coalition of AANHPI community leaders and groups in order to raise the visibility and voice of the AANHPI community in Orange County.  The OC CAC is comprised of key leaders from the OC AANHPI and nonprofit organizations, law schools and universities, the judiciary and local Asian bar associations.
