"Previous to CPA, Shaw San studied Mandarin in China for a year."

Right, studied Mandarin for a year, that's all she did, nothing else at all!


Executive Director of CPA says that CPA was inspired by the Black Panthers:


The CPA-funded Build the Wheel's page for "Planting the Seeds of a Police-Free Future":

And its curricula page:

Not surprised at all that the CCP pushes identity politics to divide the USA...good job Daily Signal!

"The CPA began as a Leftist, pro-People’s Republic of China organization, promoting awareness of mainland China’s revolutionary thought and workers’ rights, and dedicated to self-determination, community control, and ‘serving the people."


"Through our organizations, our work is rooted in bases that live in the most precarious margins of power: refugees, low-wage workers, youth, undocumented immigrants, queer and trans people, and low-income tenants."

"Our Coordinating Committee consists of: Asian Pacific Environmental Network (APEN) – Oakland, CA / AYPAL: Building API Community Power – Oakland, CA / CAAAV: Organizing Asian Communities – New York, NY / Chinese Progressive Association (CPA) – San Francisco, CA, / DRUM - South Asian Organizing Center - New York, NY / Providence Youth Student Movement (PrYSM) – Providence, RI."

And...zooming out back again to the larger network with which CPA collaborates:

"Grassroots Asians Rising is a national network of grassroots organizations rooted in Asian communities."

Back to "Shared Stories", which had workshops on advocacy in op-eds:

Teaching on gentrification

"The workshop was closed with two writing prompts that encouraged participants to re-assess a memory, situation, or feeling that was associated with pride or anger in relation to their identities."

The New York CPA had several years of youth programs for immigrants, under the name "Shared Stories":

"In August, I had the privilege of meeting participants from Shared Stories, a program sponsored by the Chinese Progressive Association (CPA) that educates and encourages youth to document immigration stories."

Previously there's been a CPA in Boston, MA as well:

Chinese Progressive Association

Here's the donation link for Build the Wheel:

Those who label words as violence do so with the sole purpose of justifying violence against words.
