Our Work

Youth Programs

Building a leadership pipeline

NCAAT works to empower, connect and provide personal and leadership development for
young Asian American Pacific Islanders. Our youth programs are open to youth of all ages and interests. We have paid opportunities, fellowships, internships and ways to engage.

Civic Engagement

Empowering community

Through voter registration and get out the vote efforts, NCAAT is setting out to tap into the power of the AAPI electorate and amplify voices from communities who often feel unheard or unrepresented. Together, we can collectively make our state more inclusive and representative of the communities here.

Community Programs

Connecting communities

By connecting our diverse AAPI communities, we empower one other. It’s because of this that NCAAT places in value in cross-ethnic an cross-racial dialogue and education. Through programs like film screenings and education workshops on history and identity, we can help build a stronger community.

Policy and Advocacy

Protecting each other

Beyond voting, as community members, we have the power to hold public officials accountable and protect each other. NCAAT helps to call attention to policies adverse to AAPI and immigrant communities and to help immigrants and refugees navigate the immigration system through naturalization workshops.

Over half of those rejections were due to mismatched signatures. We urge North Carolinians to submit public comments before July 5, 2022, advocating against this discriminatory and unnecessary practice. https://www.ncaatogether.org/OpposeSignatureMatching

Reclaiming Asian American Identity as Anti-Imperialism

During the long 60’s, the term “Asian American” meant something different than it does today. It wasn’t just a demographic category, it denoted a sense of pan-Asian identity that united Asians in both the homelands and America in the struggle against racism, colonialism, and imperialism. But it also united us with other oppressed communities within the United States.
