Founded by Mr. Yukong Zhao and other prominent Chinese-American community leaders, the Chinese Americans United for America is a non-profit, non-political and non-partisan group devoted to promoting a positive public image for Chinese Americans and contributing to the COVID-19 crisis relief efforts. With extensive experience in community organizing and civil rights advocacy from groups such as the Asian American Coalition for Education, CAUFA founders envision a broader alliance with like-minded organizations and business leaders to collectively unite our Chinese-American communities and effectively champion our voice in the mainstream media.
Our Mission & Vision
CAUFA’s missions are:
To demonstrate Chinese Americans’ exemplary citizenship and devotions to the American society during the COVID-19 pandemic and beyond;
To encourage more philanthropic activities and civic participation among Chinese Americans.
We accomplish our missions by:
Empowering Chinese-American organizations to publicize their stories through training on effective communication with English media
Collecting and organizing important data and heart-warming stories of Chinese-American citizens contributing to crisis relief, as well as those of Chinese-American healthcare professionals fighting on the forefront;
Forming a national front to motivate more Chinese Americans, Chinese-American organizations and businesses to join this grass-root movement to make ongoing contributions to this nation that we call home.
