The results of the 2020 Census determine what percentage of the annual $675 billion in federal funding will be allocated to the State of Oregon for programs from affordable housing to education, from infrastructure repairs to small business loans. The census is used to support 55+ other programs.
Did you know that over 35% of Oregon's budget comes from federal funds? If you are not counted, we lose services and we lose representation.

Honoring and Celebrating the Military Service of
Chinese American World War II Veterans
The Congressional Gold Medal (CGM) recognition of Chinese American Veterans of World War II continues to attract generous support from the community. We honor the 20,000 servicemen and women who served in the US Armed Forces during the Second World War for their service and sacrifice.
The mission of the Chinese American WWII Veterans Recognition Project, a program of the Chinese American Citizens Alliance is to recognize, honor, and celebrate the military service of Chinese Americans who fought in the Second World War through advocacy, education, also preservation. The Congressional Gold Medal (CGM) Ceremony and Gala in Washington, DC will be held in Spring, 2020. At least 10 Regional Congressional Gold Medal Ceremonies will be conducted at locations across the country after the DC Ceremony. Oregon will be one of the regional sites. We invite you, friends and family to join in the celebrations. More details will be forthcoming soon.
How Can You Help?
