Community Connections Blog

The Community Connections Blog seeks to document and celebrate the diverse experiences of the CHSA community. Featuring everything from family histories and original research to whimsical anecdotes and book reviews, our blog series has something for everyone.

While our focus is stories related to the Chinese American or Asian American experience, we welcome submissions from all community members who have a story to tell. Submit your blog entries through the form below.

  • your written blog post (250-1000 words) in a Word or Google Doc
  • sources for any research or photographs you want us to include (hyperlinks are fine)
  • any photos or graphics you’d like included as .jpg, .jpeg, or .png files
  • a short bio about yourself (2-5 sentences)
