By supporting this incredible initiative, you will enable us to build capacity, operational staff and strategic and effective programs to meet the mounting challenges facing our community.

Contribute to a Scholarship
The Joyce Chiang Memorial Scholarship was established by the Asian American Justice Center, with the support of Joyce's family.
Joyce Chiang, a young leader in the Asian Pacific American community, came to pursue a career in public service. She worked for California Congressman Howard Berman while attending law school in the evenings at the Georgetown University Law Center. After graduating, she worked for the Immigration and Naturalization Service. Then in January of last year, at the age of twenty-eight, Joyce disappeared. Her body was discovered two months later in the Potomac River. Authorities are still trying to determine the cause of her death.
The Scholarship will honor and continue Joyce's commitment to public service and leadership by supporting a new intern with the Consortium each year. By giving a young person the opportunity to gain critical experience in civil rights, the Joyce Chiang Memorial Scholarship will build on the dedication to community that Joyce represented.
Contribute to the Image Fund
AAJC established the Asian American Image Fund to research and evaluate the roles Asian Americans occupy onscreen and in television production departments, and to use the results of this research to apply pressure to the networks to make positive changes. By increasing the number and quality of Asian Americans on television, we can influence for the better how millions view Asian American individuals and communities.
Your donation will be directly applied to the development of ongoing, concrete solutions for the improvement of the image of Asian Americans across the television landscape and for the increased employment of Asian Americans within the industry.
Since 1999, AAJC has worked to increase opportunities for Asian Americans in front of and behind the camera, as well as in corporate offices of the major television networks. In 2005, AAJC broke new ground with Asian Pacific Americans in Prime Time: Lights, Camera and Little Action, a pioneer report that uses systematic research methods to analyze the type, quality, and complexity of characters portrayed by Asian American actors.
