What Have CAAAV Volunteers and Supporters Achieved?

  • In 2014, volunteers fluent in Bangla, Cantonese, Korean, and Mandarin surveyed 221 Asian NYCHA residents to compile data for the first-ever report on the experiences of Asian immigrants living in public housing.
  • In December 2014, our volunteers put their bodies on the line and participated in civil disobedience to demand police accountability the day after the announcement that NYPD officer Daniel Panteleo would not be indicted for the death of Eric Garner.
  • And much more…SO GET INVOLVED TODAY!
