2022 Chinese American Convention & UCA National Youth Convention

Chinese American Convention(美国华人大会), a national and open convening platform for Chinese communities first started in 2016, is organized by United Chinese Americans (UCA), a national community based coalition and civic movement. This Convention typically will bring together hundreds of community and civic leaders, activists, elected officials, academics as well as business leaders and entrepreneurs from across the country. They come together to discuss issues of concern to them, 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.
