Why is now the time to join Committee of 100?
Committee of 100 was founded by renowned architect I.M. Pei, who organized as an influential group of Chinese Americans who could help address issues of domestic and international concern between the United States and China.
For nearly two centuries, Chinese Americans have been contributing to the U.S. in ways that have benefited American society – from technology and science, to arts and culture, to business and finance. But unfortunately, many of those stories haven’t been told. As a member of the Committee of 100 staff, you have a chance to play a small but powerful role in advocating for the Chinese American community and highlighting the insights and contributions Chinese Americans.
On the international front, the relationship between the United States and China is the most consequential relationship of our generation, and of our children’s generation. No other organization can speak to both the domestic and international challenges – and opportunities – that Chinese Americans face.
As a member of the Committee of 100 staff, you can play a key role in shaping the future of our world. From climate change, human rights, food security, technology and science, art and culture, Committee of 100 helps advocate for a better future for 5 million Chinese Americans, as well as for a better world. Committee of 100 is making a difference in the lives of Chinese Americans through key initiatives, thought leadership, education and advocacy.
