Stanford Asian American Activism Committee (SAAAC)
SAAAC's mission is to create a supportive community for students to learn about progressive social change and build knowledge and leadership so that members can develop their own commitments to service. Issues that SAAAC will prioritize include the ways people of color are disproportionately affected by power and privilege in the US and globally, such as through immigration policy, labor exploitation, environmental racism, the housing crisis, drug policy and other ways that oppression manifests. SAAAC will develop members' commitment to service through various projects, including but not limited to internal political education, workshops for the broader Stanford community, volunteer opportunities at and connections to off-campus organizations, art projects, campaigns.
Service required by group to fulfill a Cardinal Commitment: SAAAC will connect students with off-campus service organizations, which can possibly become future Cardinal Commitment organizations. Students may also participate in campaigns on- or off-campus to create effective social change. To complete their Commitment, students will need to participate for 3 quarters or more.
