In 1973, a group of citizens of Santa Clara County gathered to express discontent and share common concerns about their experiences as Asian Americans. These community leaders founded an organization committed to the belief that diverse members of the euphemistically labeled “Quiet Minority” could unite, that their individual experiences and strengths could combine to advocate for the betterment of all Asians.
