“There must be, not a balance of power, but a community of power; not organized rivalries, but an organized peace.” — Woodrow Wilson
Asian Americans Advancing Justice - Atlanta believes in the power of community organizing and in the positive changes that result when groups and individuals mobilize around issues that impact us all. Advancing Justice - Atlanta strives to build not only consensus within our diverse Asian American communities but also with other interest groups.
Thus in 2016, Advancing Justice - Atlanta convened the Georgia Immigrant Alliance for Civic Empowerment (GIACE), a coalition of 27 immigrant and people of color groups.
The Georgia Immigrant Alliance for Civic Empowerment Coalition represents diverse communities in Georgia, including African American/Immigrant, Latinx, Asian American, Native Hawaiian, and Pacific Islander, and Refugee communities. We work diligently to increase voter participation, assist prospective naturalized citizens, increase representation and engagement in the Census and redistricting processes, and advance the stories of our respective communities. Our communities matter and, together, WE ARE GEORGIA.
