The Chinese Historical Society of America invites you to participate as a Sponsor for CHSA After Hours: APA Heritage Month Celebration. Your support of CHSA After Hours will provide for vital resources needed for CHSA to fulfill its mission to share the lessons and achievements of Chinese in America at this critical time in history. In this moment, with our celebrated exhibition Chinese American: Exclusion/Inclusion on view in our galleries, CHSA is playing a much needed role in affirming the contributions of immigrants to America. Moreover, the story of how Chinese American persevered through the era of Exclusion is an inspiration to all those who value our society’s democratic diversity.

On a personal note for many of us at CHSA: While we are saddened by the loss of our grand historian Phil Choy, we are committed to continuing his legacy with a sense of appreciation and celebration for all that he accomplished.

Please join us by making a gift to CHSA today; contact Gina Holly (gholly at chsa.org) for more details. Below find different levels of participation. And of course, mark your calendar. We would love to see you!
