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.
