The Committee of 100 (C-100), in partnership with the USA Pavilion, will build an exhibit entitled, “The Chinese in America — We are Family” at the USA Pavilion at the 2010 World Expo in Shanghai.
The exhibit will demonstrate the United States’ unique strengths as a nation, which include embracing diversity, offering freedom of choice, and providing opportunity for all to succeed.
For this exhibit, C-100 plans to rally everyone of Chinese descent across America to submit their headshots to create a wall of photographs organized by Chinese family name.
In January, C-100 will launch a public outreach campaign in traditional and digital media to encourage Chinese Americans to upload their photos.
The exhibit will also feature Chinese Americans who have contributed to important aspects of American life such as technology, the environment, the arts, sports, business, community service, and government.
The Shanghai World Expo 2010 will be held from May 1 to Oct. 31 with a projected 70 million attendees and 192 participating countries.
Founded in 1989, the Committee of 100 is a national nonpartisan, nonprofit membership organization composed of Chinese Americans in a broad range of professions. ♦
