Donate to CAAAV’s 2017 People-Powered $10K Challenge (#PP10K)

The People-Powered $10K Challenge (#PP10K) is CAAAV’s 10-day grassroots fundraising campaign that activates the collective power of our friends, families, and social networks to raise $10,000 or more to support racial and economic justice.



Last year’s #PP10K, 65 People Movers fundraised over $14,000. That $14,000 resulted in major impact for low-income Asian immigrant communities!

Since last year:

  • Over 130 tenants and youth trained on the federal policies coming down the pipeline and empowering them to fight back
  • 60 tenants trained on their rights as immigrants
  • “Know Your Rights” Trainings for 60+ Muslim tenants in Queensbridge
  • Settled legal suits against three buildings managed by R.A. Cohen & Associates, but still organizing with plaintiffs to demand more
  • Successfully pushed back against NYCHA’s lease renewal process which requires tenants to do the process online in English
  • Secured meetings with the City Planning Commission to discuss rezoning in Chinatown and the Lower East Side
  • 25 new youth cohort required for the 2017 cohort
