About the Asian Australian Alliance (AAA)
Established in 2013, AAA is a collective of various sub communities covering all Asian Australian communities, with the purpose of challenging policies and advocating for change in seeing better diversity and representation of Asian Australians in the mainstream society.
AAA has additional branches including the:
- ASIAN AUSTRALIAN ALLIANCE WOMENS FORUM (AAAWF)
- ASIAN AUSTRALIAN ALLIANCE YOUNG LEADERS (AAAYL)
- ASIAN AUSTRALIAN RAINBOW ALLIANCE (AAuRA), and
- the MOVEMENT OF ASIAN AUSTRALIAN ACADEMICS.
AAA has been the focal point of many national campaigns and has featured in the media on television, radio, print and online. It has recently been web-listed and archived as part of the National Library of Australia’s database for historical research purposes.
The conveners of Asian Australian Alliance (AAA) over the short space of two and half years have reached into a dazzling array of community issues and is already demonstrating the size of its narrative and quality of its partnership into a national infrastructure.
Using the principle of selfless empowerment and an individual accountability model, AAA has momentum unlike no other community growth vehicle.
Our AAA logo symbolizes Asian community of unity where the orbital paths of Asian communities intersect in many multiple patterns of intersectional interests and issues.
The AAA is a collective leadership of various sub-communities in the overall Asian communities known as the Indian, Chinese, Vietnamese, Filipino, Korean amongst others.
AAA brings about developing common issues so that these are effectively collectively represented with all sides of government. Through public forums and roundtables, the collective leader leadership in AAA develops ongoing policies and makes decisions in regards to these activities and issues. The role of the conveners and their support team is to administrate, manage and facilitate the wishes of the collective leadership by carrying out the decisions of the collective leadership.
In 2015, AAA expanded nationally, with branches established outside of NSW, including ACT, Victoria, Queensland and Western Australia. Currently, NSW, Victoria and the ACT are well-established, with representatives building and mobilising in the other states. These branches across the country bring together common issues so that they are effectively and collectively represented with state and federal government. In May 2016, AAA held its inaugural national conference in Melbourne, titled: Race, Identity and Advocacy – Where do Asian Australians belong? A series of panel discussions was held with leading politicians, academics, journalists, community leaders, social commentators and media personalities who will share their wisdom and discuss community issues with each other and the audience based on their own expertise, experiences and ideas.
