The Committee Against Anti-Asian Violence (CAAAV) was started in 1986. It has since been working with Asian communities on issues of racially motivated violence and police brutality. CAAAV brings together Asians of different nationalities, ethnicities and generations to address issues of racism, anti-immigration discrimination and economic injustice. CAAAV's most visible success has been in assisting hundreds of victims of anti-Asian violence over the last eight years. In addition to this visible task of fighting anti-Asian violence related cases, CAAAV seeks to unite New York's Asian communities so as to force changes in the police department, criminal justice system, public policy and media representations. Further CAAAV is involved in organizing projects with the Chinese, Korean, South Asian and the South East Asian immigrant communities in areas of youth leadership and worker organizing.
