CACF’s unique ability to combine different perspectives from the community into one powerful advocacy voice is recognized locally and nationally. CACF’s Director of Government Affairs has consulted organizations in New York’s LGBT and domestic workers communities working to shape a budget equity advocacy model similar to 13% and Growing. Our Health Policy Director has met with Boston advocates interested in our data disaggregation campaign model, and our Program Manager has fielded requests nationally on replicating our youth project ASAP and parent project POWER. This summer, the Coulter Foundation held their National AAPI Forum, with over 115attendees from across the country. CACF was one of only five organizations invited from New York.

* 13% and Growing Coalition that consists of over 45 organizations to advocate for fair State and City budgets, increasing discretionary funding to more than $1.2 million (72% growth in three years) for the Asian Pacific American community in FY 2014.
*Convened historic mayoral forum focused on Asian Pacific Americans in May 2013 in collaboration with 55 organizations. Over 600 community members were in attendance to hear several mayoral candidates, including Sal Albanese, Bill de Blasio, John Catsimatidis, and John Liu, respond to key issues impacting the Asian Pacific American community
* Introduced legislation in both New York State (A1186/S2348) and New York City (Intro. 937) through the Invisible, No More Campaign. The legislation would improve the collection, disaggregation, and reporting of data on Asian Pacific American ethnic groups, who are often lumped together into one category or not included at all in public documents.
* Empowered over 120 Asian Pacific American public high school students since 2005 to advocate for educational equity and over 500 immigrant parents since 2007 to advocate for their families’ rights.
* Awarded the New York State Department of Health In-Person Assistor (IPA)/Navigator grants for the New York State of Health Marketplace. CACF provides subgrants and technical assistance and expertise to the 9 Asian-service subcontractors which is providing health insurance enrollment assistance to uninsured Asian Pacific Americans and small businesses
