#StopTheHate Movement 2021
The violent acts against thousands of members of the Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders (AAPIs) communities since the past fifteen months having deepened the wounds that had inflicted upon us all over the world. Virginia Asian Chamber of Commerce (VACC) continues to stand with all Americans of Asian descent across the nation and world.
To contribute to the current national movement in helping to eliminate violence against the AAPIs community, VACC is doing our part in continuing to implement our seven (7) concrete actions as part of our iconic business safety program, a national model of such kind, dating back since the mid-1990s.

Small Business Imperative
The Virginia Asian Chamber of Commerce (VACC) was founded to protect the interests of 47,500+ (and fast growing) Asian Pacific American businesses in the Commonwealth of Virginia (and in the Carolinas, Georgia, Maryland, Delaware, and District of Columbia) where a growing number of VACC members headquarters are located. We relentlessly champion the vitality, profitability, and economic strength of our fast growing membership.
This mission requires that VACC level the playing field by stopping anti-American business practices, promoting the increased access to affordable capital for small Asian businesses and help raise the local, state, and federal mandate for contracting with small, Asian and other minority, and women businesses to 50% while spreading the message to the people to support U.S. small businesses.
Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders represent the true fabric of the U.S economy. We also care about American jobs and our communities.
As Americans make purchasing decisions every day, we need to understand the real impact that these decisions have on the local communities. VACC helps the government and community understand the fundamental link between America’s purchasing habits and this impact on vitality of the American communities: To empower America we must align purchasing choice with positive economic and community wellness as concrete outcomes.
