San Diego Asian Americans For Equality (SDAAFE) Foundation is a California Nonprofit Public Benefit Corporation, a 501(c)(4) organization. SDAAFE PAC is a non-partisan Political Action Committee affiliated and sponsored by the Foundation.
Our mission is to advocate full equality for San Diego Asian Americans through the following means,
- Promoting active involvement in public affairs.
- Promoting Asian American values.
- Defending our community interests and mobilizing Asian American community on issues of concern.
- Endorsing political candidates and political parties in elections.
We have been working hard to unite Asian Americans to voice our concern on issue regarding California legislature SCA5 since early 2014. We believe that it’s against the constitutional human right and it’s not fair and equal to all groups. Since the 2014 November Election, we have teamed up with other Asian advocate groups to motivate Asian American voter go out to vote. Together, we boosted the turnout rate of Asian voters and especially Chinese American voters, which historically is the least active voting group.
Since 2015, SDAAFE has been actively involved in community service, reaching out to some families with urgent needs and have built up relationship with Town Council, Lion’s Club, PUSD Advisory Committees, AACE, San Diego Chinese Association, APAC, APAPA and other Asian and non-Asian community organizations. We have also helped conduct the first San Diego API Student Mayoral Recognition Award with the Mayor’s office.
SDAAFE has been actively involved in social issues that concerns the Asian community. Major issues involved in 2015 included: Mr. Yukong Zhao’s Harvard admission complaint, Petition drive “Privacy For All” regarding toilet rights in public schools. Support of NYPD officer Peter Liang, etc.
