In 1980, a group of community leaders met in Fresno and established Central California Asian Pacific Women (CCAPW). Pioneering members developed the organization by modeling sister Asian and Pacific Islander women’s organizations in Los Angeles and the Bay Area and formed the Central California branch. Today our membership of professionals, educators, health providers, businesswomen, community activist, Asian and Pacific Islander organizational representatives and community leaders continues our mission after 31 years.

For over 30 years, CCAPW has provided a space for Asian Pacific women to gather, network, learn, and get involved in the community. As we continue to grow in our membership and carry out the work of our vision, we are excited at what the coming months and years hold for our organization as well as for our communities.
