BENEFITING: Chinatown People Progressive Association Inc.
EVENT DATE: Jun 18, 2016
I’m so excited to be riding in the Chinatown Bike-A-Thon! The funds from the Bike-A-Thon directly support the Chinese Youth Initiative (CYI), which provides internship opportunities for youth in the Greater Boston area. In these internships, youth learn about Asian American Studies and learn about community organizing through working on their own projects.
I’ve had the honor of seeing some of the amazing work that CYI youth have done in advocating for a Chinatown library and for affordable public transportation, and I am so proud to call many CYI alum friends (including many ATI trainers and alum!) and to see the amazing work they’ve gone on to do in strengthening Chinatown and Asian American communities and supporting justice for those who need it most.
Please join us in supporting our youth in learning our histories and organizing our communities!
