About Us

Our Mission: Increase Asian American civic engagement so that we become more involved in our local communities while also gaining a diversity of experiences and perspectives as service-minded, active citizens.

Beginnings

AACS was founded in 2018 by a group of civically-minded Asian American students from a variety of schools in the St. Louis area. Before starting AACS, we were all involved in community service and interested in national, regional, and local politics. However, we noticed something very concerning. Asian Americans rarely engaged in civic leadership within their community and are rarely included in political discussions. Thus, we started AACS to increase Asian American participation in activism, leadership, and volunteering. By encouraging Asian youth to become more involved in their community, AACS hopes to develop the community’s social and political mindset.

Partnered Organizations

AACS has partnered with many like-minded organizations to engage more members in our community. With their help, we have led many events that promoted our core values of activism, leadership, and volunteering.
