Food and Love Tri-Conference
On Sunday, May 31, 2020 at 1pm EST, United Chinese Americans (UCA) will hold a special conference on COVID-19 relief efforts and hate crimes in the United States . The conference will first spotlight the achievements of its inaugural “Food of Love” program and then feature a panel dialogue between leaders from Chinese, Jewish, and African American communities.
To combat hate, Chinese Americans chose love by launching the Food of Love program. The motto: 50 states, 100 cities, One People United. Since early May, Chinese American communities have served tens of thousands of meals to tens of thousands of frontline workers and fellow Americans in need.
“We have made more friends in our communities,” says Haipei Shue, UCA President. “We have made a difference.”
During the second half of the conference, distinguished leaders from African American, Chinese, and Jewish communities will discuss challenges each community faces and ways to work together to address injustice. The guest speakers include Congresswoman Grace Meng, Congressman Bobby Scott, Derrick Johnson (President and CEO, NAACP), David Harris (CEO, American Jewish Committee), David Bernstein (President and CEO, Jewish Council for Public Affairs), and Helen Zia (Journalist and Activist).
