Join the Chinese Progressive Association for the 16th annual Chinatown Bike-a-thon! Help support future generations of grassroots organizers and activists by fundraising for CPA's youth leadership program, the Chinese Youth Initiative (CYI).
CYI provides meaningful political education and hands-on organizing experiences to high school aged youth in the Greater Boston area. This year, CYI is adapting to the COVID-19 pandemic by holding its program completely online. CYI interns are learning history and building a political community to support workers, tenants, and elderly residents. To address the pandemic, we are forming working groups in green justice, housing stabilization, public outreach, and more. Other recent work by CYI youth includes fighting anti-Asian racism with a virtual Intergenerational Town Hall and an Instagram campaign (@covid19feelings).
To support the efforts of essential workers and the health of our communities during the COVID-19 pandemic, we encourage participation in the Bike-a-thon from home!
What does that look like?
