Progress Update from Asian American Coalition for Education

The Asian American Coalition for Education (“AACE”) is a non-political, non-profit, national organization devoted to promoting equal rights for Asian-Americans in education and education-related activities. In May 2015, the founders of AACE united more than 60 Asian American organizations to file a complaint with Department of Justice and Department of Education regarding Harvard University’s discriminatory practices against Asian American applicants. It was one of the largest joint actions ever taken by Asian American organizations in pursuit of equal education rights.

Wall Street Journal interviewed Mr. Yukong Zhao, one of the founders of AACE, in June 2015. The title of the interview is Harvard’s Chinese Exclusion Act.

Here is the progress update for our recent efforts:
1. 100+ Asian American Organizations Urge Supreme Court to Ban Racial Discrimination in College Admissions
2.  Unfairly Rejected by Ivy Leagues, Asian-American Student Filed Complaint with Office for Civil Rights, Department of Education
3. Asian American Coalition Rejects OCR’s Report on Princeton University’s Alleged
Discrimination against Asian Americans
On behalf of Asian American Coalition for Education (AACE), we thank you and your organization for your support on the Amicus Brief we filed on September 10, 2015 with the US Supreme Court for the Fisher vs University of Texas case. Let us continue to work together to fight for equal education rights for all Asian-Americans.
