The Asian American Alliance at the University of Rochester is committed to empowering APIA through political activism, community engagement, and social awareness. We strive for collaborative relationships with the Rochester community, activist groups, and other POC (person of color) groups. AAA will serve to provide a platform for the organization and expression of views and interests of Asian Pacific Islander American students at the University of Rochester. Our goal is to tackle APIA issues from social and political perspectives while still encompassing the intricacies of diverse Asian backgrounds, with emphasis on the idea that there is no one single Asian-American experience, but a multitude. AAA seeks to be a place where people of all backgrounds can stand united to empower the APIA community.
