The Cambodian Advocacy Collaborative (CAC) is a partnership between five Cambodian serving organizations: Cambodian Association of America, Families in Good Health, Khmer Girls in Action, Khmer Parent Association, and United Cambodian Community. Together, CAC improves the health of the Cambodian Community by building the capacity of organizations and residents to collectively advocate for policy and systems changes that reduce Cambodian health disparities. You can increase health in the Cambodian community and CAC by:

  • Participating in Cambodian Community Forums
  • Building advocacy skills through the Cambodian Advocacy Leadership Institute
  • Becoming a Cambodian Advocacy Intern
  • Engaging in current policy campaigns on languages access, school funding, parent engagement, student achievement, alternative school disciplines, school wellness centers, tobacco reduction, and mental health
