Mission

 

The MoCoPAAN’s mission is to raise the visibility of Asian Americans through lifting up progressive voices and strengthening allyship through strategic communications.  

 

In doing so, we wish to demonstrate that Asian Americans have a multitude of voices.  We speak out on issues that affect people of diverse backgrounds: representation, equity and inclusion; immigrant rights; and, racial discrimination, bias and profiling, and anti-Black racism.
