The mission of OCA Las Vegas is to provide support and empower Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders (AAPI) to find our voice and identity while making positive changes in the community.
Our vision is to become the organization of choice and to create a thriving and engaged community of AAPI leaders for the next generation.
Founded in 1973, OCA is a national organization dedicated to advancing the social, political, and economic well-being of Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders in the United States. OCA Las Vegas was founded on July 4, 1998 and is one of 50 chapters across the United States. Helping to further the mission of OCA in Southern Nevada, advocacy is achieved through events, programs, and volunteer opportunities that connect members of the community at large with the AAPI community. By fostering the building of communal bonds through these opportunities, we hope to empower people to celebrate culture and stand up for equality and social justice. Furthermore, OCA and the OCA Las Vegas chapter aim to embrace the hopes and aspirations of Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders through various programs and events. Some of which include:
- Membership drive mixers and workshops/panels
- Volunteering and networking opportunities
- Mentorship Program for high school and college students (both undergraduate and graduate) and young professionals who have recently graduated
We are open to everyone in Southern Nevada and offer individual, student, senior, and family memberships.
