WACCCC is a Washington state nonprofit organization and a community civic movement, inspired and dedicated to enriching and empowering Chinese American communities through civic engagement, political participation, heritage sharing, youth development and a greater understanding between US and China for the well-being of all Americans and this world.
Sponsored by the Civic Leadership USA (CLUSA) and other future grant-giving institutions, Civil Leadership USA (CLUSA) aims to train Asian Americans to fully participate in America’s civic and political life by creating a pipeline for its leaders for a representative democracy and a just society. Traditionally, Asian Americans have been underrepresented in the political sphere on both the local levels and national stages. It is therefore critical for each of us to be part of the solution by developing such future leaders. Our goal is to unite our community across the country, to empower our civic and political leaders. We hope to light the fire, rally the troop, and march on to build better communities and more perfect Union of both today and tomorrow.
On a related issue concerning our youth and parents, Asian/Chinese American students are often at high risk for being bullied, which could lead to severe mental illness, identity confusion, and low self esteem. We are working together with UCA (United Chinese Association) on urgent needs of our community for programs that can help our youth and family.
