About UCA

The United Chinese Americans (UCA) is a community-based civic movement and federation, dedicated to the enrichment and empowerment of the Chinese American community in the United States. We are a nonpartisan, non-government affiliated coalition with a growing number of chapters, partners and affiliates throughout the United States. 

Founded in September 2016 at the inaugural Chinese American Convention, UCA was formally incorporated and received IRS 501(c)(3) nonprofit status in 2017. UCA has since grown into a national federation with 12 chapters and over 30 community partners. Currently, UCA has chapters in the following cities or states: Atlanta, Connecticut, Illinois, Iowa, Massachusetts, Nevada, New Jersey, New York City, San Francisco, Washington State, West Virginia, and Wisconsin. 

UCA motto: Serve, Lead, Inspire

UCA core values: Service, Compassion and Humanity
