Embracing the hopes and aspirations of Asian Pacific Americans

OCA (formerly known as the Organization of Chinese Americans) Pittsburgh is a 501(c)3 not-for-profit, non-partisan organization and is part of OCA National, a civil rights advocacy and educational organization dedicated to advancing the social, political and economic well-being of Americans of Asian and Pacific Islander descent. To securing the rights of Asian and Pacific Islander American citizens and permanent residents through legislative and policy initiatives at all levels of the government, and to bettering the lives of the more than 12 million Asian and Pacific Islander Americans across the country. Headquartered in Washington D.C., OCA has over 100 chapters and affiliates across the country participating in community involvement and developing the leadership potential and skills of the next generation. OCA takes no collective position on the politics of any foreign country, but instead focuses on the welfare and civil rights of Asian Pacific Americans in the United States.
