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.

Everyone here at NCAAT is devastated by the loss of life in Palestine and Israel. We are heartbroken by the killing of Israeli civilians by Hamas and by the killings, dehumanization, and human rights violations committed against Palestinian civilians by Israeli leadership. Members of our community have loved ones who are directly affected by the violence in Israel and Palestine, and we hold them in our hearts in this time of fear and grief. Everyone deserves to live in safety and without the threat of terror, loss, and suffering.

NCAAT denounces the U.S. Supreme Court’s ruling against affirmative action

Yesterday, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that affirmative action programs at Harvard and UNC-Chapel Hill were unconstitutional. NCAAT strongly disagrees with this decision. For years, colleges have considered race as a factor in admissions to gain a full understanding of an applicant’s story and to create more inclusive and representative student bodies. The Supreme Court’s regressive decision will set back all marginalized communities — including Asian Americans — and further increase the education and economic divide.

A Story of Resilience: Michelle Yeoh’s and Ke Huy Quan’s Journeys

Each year, we all turn our attention to the big screens, searching for a movie, in hopes of catching a reflection of ourselves. It doesn’t have to be the big blockbuster theatrical performance of a lifetime – a movie with the right amount of intrigue woven into a heartfelt narration will suffice. But this past year, one particular film has captured worldwide attention: Everything Everywhere All at Once.
