About AACO

Working hand-in-hand with the Community

Asian Americans for Community Outreach (AACO) is an organization dedicated to creating a forum in the San Francisco Bay Area where Asian American professionals and students can meet and foster the common goal of community service, benefiting the extended community as a whole.

AACO members can be found throughout the Bay Area. AACO organizes community service and social events and promotes awareness of social and political issues relevant to Asian Americans. By bringing together people from many diverse fields, AACO hopes to pool its members' knowledge, strength, and experience to make a positive impact on our community.

We welcome you to contact us if you have any questions about our organization.
