In the year since COVID-19 hit the shores of the United States, Americans across all 50 states have been impacted by personal tragedy, financial hardship and economic challenge. One of the areas hardest hit by COVID-19 are the Chinatowns across the United States. From New York to San Francisco, Miami to Seattle, Chinatowns across the country have been struggling from a lack of tourism, fear of the virus and outright racism directed toward Chinese Americans. This February we celebrate Chinese New Year, the Year of the Ox, that symbolizes hard work, intelligence and reliability. Join us as we Celebrate the Year of the Ox, learn what’s next for our iconic Chinatowns, and how to support their recovery!
The event will be moderated by Nicholas Wu, Congressional Reporter at USA TODAY, and will feature Congresswoman Grace Meng (D-NY), Dr. William Gow, Lecturer of Asian American and American Studies at Stanford University; Grace Young, Cookbook Author and Culinary Historian; Chiling Tong, Committee of 100 Member and CEO & President of National ACE; Jennifer Tam & Victoria Lee, Co-Founders of Welcome to Chinatown; and Betty Louie, Board Advisor of the Chinatown Merchants Association.
