2022 Chinese American Convention &  UCA Youth National Convention

July 14-16, 2022    Washington, DC


The “Chinese American Convention” (美国华人大会), held every two years, is an open, convening platform for Chinese communities. The event is organized by the United Chinese Americans (UCA): a national community-based coalition and civic movement. The first and second conventions were held in 2016 and 2018 respectively. Due to the pandemic, the third convention–originally scheduled for 2020–has been postponed to the summer of 2022. As with our first two successful conventions, our third convention will bring together hundreds of community and civic leaders, activists, elected officials, academics as well as business leaders and entrepreneurs from across the country. They will come together to discuss issues and concerns, share unique experiences, forge consensus and common agenda, and explore opportunities to work together. For 2022, UCA will also hold its inaugural “UCA National Youth Convention” (UCA全国青年大会), where hundreds of young students–high school and college–will convene in the nation’s capital to network, learn from each other, expose themselves to new ideas and initiatives, and ultimately nurture a youth movement for change among the Chinese American community.
