About CHSA and purpose of chsa.org
CHSA is a nonprofit educational organization that collects, preserves, and illuminates the history of Chinese in America by serving as a center for research, scholarship and learning to inspire a greater appreciation for, and knowledge of, their collective experience through exhibitions, public programs, and any other means for reaching the widest audience.
As a tax-exempt organization, CHSA is prohibited from supporting attempts to influence the outcome of any election for public office. Accordingly, with chsa.org, CHSA seeks to provide a forum to discuss policy—not to advance the interests of any particular political party or candidate for office.
