2022 Chinese American Convention & UCA National Youth Convention

The Chinese American Convention(美国华人大会) is a nationwide, open convening platform for Asian American communities organized by United Chinese Americans (UCA): a national community-based coalition and civic movement. This Convention brings together hundreds of grassroot and civic leaders, activists, elected officials, academics, business leaders and entrepreneurs from across the country. We come together to engage in meaningful, timely conversations, share and compare unique experiences, forge consensus and common agenda, and explore opportunities to work together.

The UCA National Youth Convention is a cultural and political experience that seeks to empower Asian American youth through exploring identity and community.
