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.

Come volunteer with AACI to help their Domestic Violence (DV) program raise awareness of DV in the Asian-American community. We will be helping them with the origami crane making project. The crane, symbolizing peace, hope and strength are distributed around the community along with information about help available to victims of domestic violence. AACO volunteers will be involved in the folding of the origami cranes and attaching informational cards to the cranes. For those interested, we will head out for lunch afterwards at a nearby restaurant.
