BENEFITING: Chinatown People Progressive Association Inc.
EVENT DATE: Jun 18, 2016
Please help me in supporting the Chinese Youth Initiative by sponsoring me in the Chinatown Bikeathon. Every year the youth in our program is an inspiration. Throughout the summer and the academic year, participants in CYI grow immensely by being exposed to their own history and empowered to make a difference in their community.
I remember when I was in high school and struggled with my own identity and how I fit in. CYI helped me connect more to my own community and my roots. It helped me have a place and a neighborhood I could call home.
Your support will help grow the future organizers for the fight to keep Chiantown a home for working class immigrants and for a city where we have a #right2remain. I hope Chinatown remains the vibrant and rich community it is for my daughter and many future generations to come.
