California Policy

Over 900,000 Cambodian, Hmong, Laotian, and Vietnamese Americans make California their home. The SEARAC California Office opened over ten years ago to serve and moblize the largest Southeast Asian American (SEAA) community in the country--many of whom continue to be disproportionately underserved. Our advocacy work focuses on making sure that SEAAs in California have access to affordable health care, that state and local institutions provide linguistically and culturally appropriate services, that immigrants and refugees have the support they need to thrive as Americans, and that SEAA young men have their say on policies that impact them.
