Colorado Asian Culture and Education Network (CACEN - pronounced "Kay-Sen") is a 501c3 organization founded in 2009. The organization’s mission is to elevate Colorado's Asian American Native Hawaiian Pacific Islander (AANHPI) communities and address inequities through cultural exchange and education.

CACEN's programs and activities include to: promote Asian cultural education and awareness through community-designed activitie; build bridges of awareness, knowledge, and understanding between Colorado’s diverse Asian communities and the general public; enhance cultural exchange through hosting and organizing social and educational activities, including, but not limited to, language classes and cultural lessons on Asian traditions and lifestyle;  preserve cultural values and heritage through activities and programs which highlight, celebrate, share, and teach the virtues of the foundations of Asian cultures.

With the rise in anti-Asian hate during the pandemic,
AANHPIs are still healing and finding strength.
