In addition, OCA is able to build national support and to work in coalition with other national groups around issues affecting Asian Pacific Americans. OCA takes no collective position on the politics of any foreign country, but instead focuses on the rights of Asian Pacific Americans.

With over 80 chapters and affiliates across the nation, OCA members have the opportunity to network and build connections both at the community level and at the national level. We encourage you to join a local chapter and get involved at events at your local level. Members also have the opportunity to get involved in chapter board meetings and at the quarterly National Board meetings as a chapter president or chapter representative.
