GENERAL INFO

The Celebration of Justice is CAA’s largest annual fundraiser and brings together community leaders, activists, corporate supporters, and friends for a night of celebration and renewing our commitment to social justice. Over 400 guests attend the Celebration of Justice each year, including prominent leaders in the Asian & Pacific Islander, civil rights, and political communities. This year, we celebrate CAA’s 46th year serving the Chinatown and Asian American communities, and we honor key civic and community leaders.
Our 46th Anniversary Celebration of Justice will be held on Thursday, September 17th at the Far East Cafe in San Francisco. The reception will begin at 6:00pm followed by a multi-course dinner and stage program at 7:00pm. Our event will include seating and programming on both floors of the restaurant to ensure accessibility. Please contact us at COJ2015@caasf.org with accessibility questions and requests.
