Asian and Pacific Islander Coalition of Washington

Mobilizing our communities. Building power. Demanding justice.


APIC is built on the collective strength of Asians and Pacific Islanders in our state.

We recognize the need for a collective voice advocating for the rights and equity of Asians and Pacific Islanders, including immigrants, refugees, and citizens around Washington state. Our mission is to advance and restore civil and human rights and pursue racial and economic justice for these communities, in solidarity with other Black, Brown, and Indigenous communities. We do this work statewide in collaboration with our seven regional chapters.


APIC is committed to fighting for robust, equitable, and impactful policies that benefit our communities.

Our policy and advocacy work aims to connect the values we have seen, heard, and felt in our community to a larger political system that represents and serves us.

We focus our efforts on these issues and beyond:
