美国华人联合会

UCA is calling on Chinese Community to engage in all means available to help fight against the virus: donation, education, volunteering, funding support, communication, and collaboration. Love heals, and sympathy unites.
Since the initial outbreak of novel coronavirus outbreak, we have been watching very closely and working with organizations locally and nationally in coordinating our efforts. In addition, we have compiled a list of resources for community to share.

Health clinics. Fire departments. Schools. Even roads and highways. The census can shape many different aspects of your community. Your response matters. UCA has been helping out local communities to get involved.

Under the theme “Strengthening Our Community, Embracing a Pluralistic Society”, UCA has successfully held two Chinese American Conventions, attended by hundreds. The next convention is going to be held in Las Vegas, NV soon. It was planned on June 24-27, 2020, however, due to the urgent coronavirus situation, UCA has postponed the convention until further notice.
