History

Founding Year: 1973

AACI began when a group of citizens of Santa Clara County gathered to express discontent and share common concerns about their experiences as Asian Americans. These community leaders founded a pioneer organization committed to the powerful belief that diverse members of the euphemistically labeled "Quiet Minority" could unite, that their individual experiences and strengths could combine to create a single voice and that with this voice they could assert the rights and advocate for the betterment and well-being of all Asian Pacific Americans.
