The mission of Asian American Organizing Project (AAOP) is to advance Asian American participation in democracy for an equitable and just society.

AAOP strives to strengthen and expand their capacity as a platform to engage and foster community oriented leaderships of youth and young (15-35 years old) Asian community members in Minnesota. They utilize a Gender Justice lens (that analyzes gender, sexuality, race, ethnicity, class, age, mental health, and disabilities) through their civic and cultural organizing to address issues affecting their family and neighborhoods.
