Who We Are

Asian American Studies Mural

Established in the fall of 1975, the Asian Pacific Coalition (APC) is a coalition of 24 Asian and Pacific Islander (API) organizations. These member organizations represent many different geographic regions, languages, cultures, and generations that contribute to the diversity of the campus. APC also serves as the officially recognized voice of API students on campus, working with the Asian American Studies Center and Department, USAC, and UCLA administration, as well as other non-API student communities on campus.

We work on many issues, including:

  • Access to Education
  • Immigration Issues
  • Labor Rights
  • API Media Portrayal
  • Lesbian, Gay, Transgender, Bisexual (LGBT) Issues
  • Hate Crimes

We also host many different exciting events, including:

  • Asian Pacific American Heritage Month (APAHM)
  • Asian Pacific Islander Graduation (APIG)
  • Fall into APC! General Meeting
  • Art Exhibits and Spoken Word/Poetry Performances
  • Film Screenings
  • Where is the Love? Hate Crimes Awareness
  • Super Fun Social Events
  • Co-programmed events with member organizations
