Civic Engagement

Chinese Americans have historically faced cultural, professional, and legal barriers to equal opportunity and livelihood in the United States. Through its Civic Engagement program, the Committee of 100 unites the Chinese American community, its leaders, and the American public in order to raise awareness of existing and emerging societal challenges. The Committee pursues social advocacy and civic engagement through a variety methods: the Issues Committee and C100 Statements, the Legal Defense & Education Fund and associated publications, the Espionage Workshop and the Economic Espionage Act White Paper, and individual member activities.
