Since 2009, the San Francisco chapter has aimed to enrich the lives of Asian American professionals across the Bay Area. Here is where Asian American leaders can come together to find solidarity & strength in our shared experiences while also celebrating the nuanced differences of our identity.
Our SF chapter is unique in how we are deeply tied to AAPI history in our nation. Whether it's our historic Chinatown created after the Gold Rush, Angel Island as an immigration station, or the significant number of Japanese relocated to Internment Camps - we cannot truly celebrate our Asian American heritage without looking at the role San Francisco played in all of it.
We provide opportunities for people to not just learn about leadership, but to practice it hands on and to truly lead by example.
By working together through innovative philanthropy, our members have built life-long friendships along the way.
We have the distinct privilege of being tied to a community with a long and arduous history of what it means to be Asian in America. A community we honor and on whose shoulders we stand to continue advancing our AAPI voice.
Since 2011, our Plate by Plate has sold over 3000 tickets and raised over $250k for our beneficiary partners through the years. We will continue raising that number for the future.
