We started out our morning with a visit to Chinese for Affirmative Action (CAA).
Chinese for Affirmative Action (CAA) was founded in 1969 to protect the civil and political rights of Chinese Americans and to advance multiracial democracy in the United States. Today, CAA is a progressive voice in and on behalf of the broader Asian American and Pacific Islander community. They advocate for systemic change that protects immigrant rights, promotes language diversity, and remedies racial and social injustice.
The day continued with a tour through Chinatown with historian David Lei. He was a wealth of information and shared incredible insights about this important place.
