Our Mission

United Chinese Americans (UCA) is a nationwide nonprofit and nonpartisan federation and civic movement, inspired and dedicated to enriching and empowering Chinese American communities through civic engagement, political participation, heritage sharing, youth development and a greater understanding between US and China for the well-being of all Americans and this world.

Area of Focus

Civic Engagement and Political Participation

UCA has been a national leader in making sure Chinese American community fully participate in American civic and political life, actively engage in public policy making and debate, and unequivocally demand that they be treated as equals.

Next Generation

To help build a pipeline to nurture future Asian American leaders, UCA created a series of programs to foster leadership, including: Summer Civic Leadership Internship, UCA Summer University, and UCA Youth Convention.

Chinese American Culture, Values and Identity

UCA believes only when Chinese Americans fully explore and appreciate the unique identity and roots of Chinese American way of life could they fully enjoy their confident and spiritually rewarding American life in this multi-ethnic democracy of ours.

Mental Health and Emotional Well-being

Due to a unique set of familial, cultural, and societal factors, mental health issues among Asian American youth are on the rise but have received little attention. Working with local community organizations and a team of experts and counselors, UCA WAVES addresses this urgent need by creating culturally-informed programs to raise awareness and provide knowledge of mental health concerns.
