Chinese Progressive Association - New York City
Based in Manhattan's Chinatown / Lower East Side, the Chinese Progressive Association works towards social and economic justice for Chinese Americans.
We involve community residents in the decision making processes that affect their lives. We bring together people from diverse backgrounds and walks of life to work toward these goals. We work with other communities and support equality and justice for all.
We provide educational, advocacy, service, and organizing programs that raise the community's living and working standards.
Our current programs include
- English as a Second Language and Civics education
- Immigrant Rights Project
- Chinese Political Empowerment Project (Voter & Civic Engagement)
- Shared Stories Youth Program
- Chinatown Environmental Health & Justice Project
