40th Anniversary Conference
Join us for the 2019 Conference from November 11-13,2019 to celebrate CISANI's 40th anniversary in New York City! This conference will be a great opportunity to look back on what has been accomplished and look forward to what we will do together as CISANI. The conference theme is "From Wall Street to Main Street: Civic Engagement in Changing Times." The Chinese community is being activated around the U.S. and in different countries, playing a key role in effecting change. From youth to seniors, Chinese communities are engaging on a range of issues, including Census 2020 and gentrification in the U.S. as well as democracy and sovereignty abroad. Together, we will explore how civic engagement is impacting Chinese social service organizations and the community members we serve.
