The Brooklyn Chinese-American Association was founded in 1988. The association serves the Asian-American communities in Bay Ridge, Sunset Park, and Borough Park. CCBA aims to create a better community for New Yorkers of Chinese descent, and it fulfills its functions through partnerships with local businesses. The association also maintains contacts with other Chinese-American organizations in the United States. The organization supports the integration of Chinese-Americans into mainstream American society.
The China Association’s twenty-fifth annual meeting was held in Shanghai. The meeting was organized by H. C. Zen, who served as the first chairman. The meeting included speeches by Dr. W. H. Wong, who spoke on secrecy and scientific research. Dr. K. C. Chu emphasized the importance of utilizing scientific knowledge for peace. During the meeting, various scientific discourses were held aimed at improving the quality of scientific education in China.
The association was created to serve Chinese students at Purdue University. It was created to promote the Chinese culture and foster understanding and multicultural exchange in the university and the community. It also serves as a social platform. As a result, the UCA helps foster a comfortable environment for Chinese students, while also fostering collaboration and exchange. The association also facilitates collaboration between scientists and with the rest of the world. This way, researchers can learn from each other.
The CCBA continued to pursue its original mandate, protecting Chinese residents. They provided welfare services, settled disputes within the community, and lobbied against discriminatory legislation such as the head tax, segregated schools, and laws prohibiting Chinese business owners from hiring white women. In addition, the CCBA supported charitable institutions and offered legal assistance for its members. These activities helped the association become a valuable resource for Chinese immigrants.
In addition to providing assistance to Chinese residents in Chinatown, CCBA also spearheaded the formation of the Chinese Voters Federation in May 2004. It encouraged Chinese Americans to participate in the 2004 Presidential election, increasing the number of Chinese voters in Chinatown by 24.2%. Furthermore, the CCBA has also been active in the establishment of the Chinatown Partnership Local Development Corporation and the Asian Job Service Employer Committee in New York.
The CCBA is the umbrella organization for the Chinese community in New England. It was founded in 1884 and has more than thirty-five members. The CCBA has been dissolved three times since it was founded, including once in 1925, but reinstituted in 1932. In 1947, Chinese Canadians obtained the right to vote. In 1987, the Chinese Consolidated Benevolent Association of New England reestablished its status as a society.
As the Chinese population in Vancouver grew, discriminatory laws were passed in British Columbia. In the 1870s, Chinese and First Nations residents were disenfranchised by British Columbian government legislation. In Victoria, for example, the Chinese were prohibited from working on public works projects, and white residents resorted to violence. However, these laws are long since passed. However, discrimination against Chinese people did not end until the 1990s, and British Columbia’s discriminatory policies continue to impact Chinese people today.
Fortunately, Chinese Canadians were allies in the Second World War. They donated to the Canadian Red Cross and the Committee for Medical Aid to China. The discrimination toward Chinese Canadians was reduced after the war. After the war, immigrants could become Canadian citizens and move out of Chinatown. The CCBA eventually became obsolete, as more Chinese moved outside of Chinatown. A recent study found that the majority of Chinese residents chose to educate their children in English.
