(CNN) - Asian-American business leaders have raised $250 million to fight discrimination directed at the Asian American and Pacific Islander community.
The Asian-American Foundation raised an initial $125 million from prominent Asian Americans that will serve on its board.
That includes Yahoo co-founder Jerry Yang and Alibaba billionaire and Brooklyn Nets owner Joe Tsai.
