Museum of Chinese in America (MOCA) Event
Wendy Gong (Chinese 2018), Taina Orellana (Chinese 2018), and Nicole Rojas (Chinese 2017), 2018 ADF recipients, organized an event at the Museum of Chinese in America (MOCA) in New York City with the aim of educating the public on resources for Asian Americans. The goals were to have a dialogue and educational programming on current issues pertinent to the Asian American community. Speakers from local Asian American groups such as APEX, a mentoring organization for AAPI youth, the Coalition for the Revitalization of Asian American Studies at Hunter College, the Asian American Alliance political student organization at Columbia University, and JACL, a civil rights organization.
The event was organized to shed light on the fact that many Asian Americans live in poverty in New York City and are not aware of the resources available to them. The 54 attendees included young professionals, college students, families, and senior citizens.
