North Carolina Asian Americans Together (NCAAT) is a nonpartisan, nonprofit organization focused on bringing together the AAPI community in North Carolina through civic engagement and political participation.
Our Priorities for 2017
To further our mission in 2017, NCAAT will be focusing on the following areas:
To move forward together, we must understand the past. This is why one of our major goals this year will be to educate one another on the history of Asian Americans in the United States and in North Carolina. Learning about our contributions and struggles to our nation’s and state’s rich history and culture will help us build a path together forward.
Whether through art, music, dance, film… expressing our voices is an important way to engage in society. Celebrating the Asian American experience through expression empowers our communities continue to be involved in and part of the institutions around us.
Discussing issues of the day with one another and with elected officials is one of the most direct ways to getting our voices heard beyond voting. Whether through townhalls or other methods, we’ll reach out to communities to talk about the issues that matter to them the most.
