THE STORY:

Hi, Friends and Fam--

I'm riding to support the Chinese Youth Initiative, a youth program that's near and dear to my heart, on June 20, 2015!

I joined the program as a high school sophomore, and it's transformed my world-- it provided me with a space and the vocabulary to talk about the world around us and to recognize that social justice is something we should all be fighting for.

I've returned to CYI since then in many different capacities, and the program has grown multifold, but the values remain the same: We aim to equip high school youth with skill sets in community organizing while building connections with other like-minded young people in the greater Boston community. 

CYI youth and alums have fought for Asian American studies and ethnic studies in our schools, a youth pass for the MBTA, a library in Chinatown, youth jobs, and many other campaigns-- while we've won some battles, we also have more to come, and we need your help!

Here's the breakdown:

  • $5 will cover supplies for creative projects.
  • $10 will cover food for an afterschool CYI meeting.
  • $15 will cover a tshirt that our youth can wear to represent us at events.
  • $20 will cover all of a youth member's meals during our annual retreat.
  • $50 will cover all of the above.
  • $100 will make you one of my favorite people EVER.

Thank you so much for your support-- it means the world to me! See you on the bike path!

- Dora

***************************************************

The 11th Annual Chinatown Bike-A-Thon is scheduled for Saturday, June 20th from 9AM-2PM (Rain Date: June 21st).  The Chinatown Bike-a-thon is a green and healthy fundraiser to support youth leadership and a brighter future in our community. The ride is approximately 16 miles on the Paul Dudley White Bike Path along the Charles River.  It is a family-friendly event that promotes healthy living and culminates in a picnic on the Boston Common.  We are excited to continue to grow our Bike-a-thon and to grow our youth program with your help!

 

The funds raised from the Chinatown Bike-a-thon directly support Chinese Youth Initiative (CYI). CYI provides internship opportunities to high school aged youth from the Greater Boston area, combining an Asian American Studies curriculum with hands-on community service and organizing projects. Over the past twenty one years, CYI youth have played crucial roles in the campaign for a Chinatown library, voter registration drives, support for immigrant workers’ rights, establishing the first Chinatown Youth Platform, advocating for public transit and much more. CYI graduates have gone on to become teachers, lawyers, planners, artists, community organizers, and entrepreneurs, all working to make a difference in Boston and in the world.
