2018 Convention Theme:  Strengthen Our Community, Embrace a Pluralistic Society

Hosted by United Chinese Americans (UCA), a nonprofit and nonpartisan organization , 2018 Chinese American Convention will bring the like-minded Chinese Americans together to address issues facing our fast-growing communities. The two-day conference will serve as a unique platform for the participants to learn from civic leaders and community experts, discuss commonly concerned issues, share experiences and explore opportunities to work collaboratively. United States is becoming a pluralistic society. Like all other minorities, Chinese Americans desire a multi-ethnic democracy where every race and ethnic group enjoy full participation in the political process.
