The Chinese American Citizens Alliance (CACA) held its 53rd Biennial Convention in Seattle Aug 6-9. Seattle is the youngest chapter of the 18 chapters across the country.
CACA was founded in 1895 by a group of Chinese Americans in San Francisco. Since its inception the alliance has played a role in many civil rights milestones, including the Magnuson Act, which repealed the Chinese Exclusion Act of 1882, and supporting the Civil Rights Act of 1965. CACA has now grown to 18 chapters across the country.
The four-day convention included tours of the city, a visit to the Wing Luke and Chinatown, the Spirit of America banquet/gala, seminars, education workshops, and guest speakers. (end)
