API Equality - Northern California was founded in 2004 in response to a 6,000 person rally against marriage quality that was organized by Chinese Christian leaders in the San Francisco Bay Area. It began as a national ad hoc coalition of API persons and organizations advocating for marriage equality. Today it is now a full-pledged multi-issue organization that actively promotes equality and justice in the Northern CA area and in the state's API and LGBTQ communities. Its sister organization is API Equality - Los Angeles.
