The Asian Australian Alliance in NSW (AAA NSW) held its Inaugural Launch in July 2013 which marked the start of this advocacy movement, and it celebrated its formation by having various speakers from the Asian Australian community discuss their respective community’s positive contribution to Australia.
Since then the Asian Australian Alliance in NSW (AAA NSW) has run various campaigns, such as the infamous Project 18C, a social media operation which saw over 75 local councils across Australia pass resolutions opposing changes to Section 18C of the Racial Discrimination Act back in 2014 (further details can be found on the “campaigns” section of this website under “Project 18C”). This campaign started on a NSW state based approach, but quickly became a national campaign as it developed a following and media interest.
Between the years of 2013 – 2015, Asian Australian Alliance in NSW (AAA NSW) held a number of panel discussions on the Racial Discrimination Act and racism as a whole, held a series of stakeholder consultations, launched the Movement of Asian Australian Academics (MAAA), the Asian Australian Alliance Young Leaders (AAAYL) and the Asian Australian Alliance Women’s Forum (AAAWF), and introduced the importance and significance of the Asian Australian Alliance (AAA) to all the major parties, independent MPs and organisations. The Asian Australian Alliance in NSW (AAA NSW) continues to grow in importance and significance and hopes to continue this for the coming months and years to come.
