Participating in the Coalition of Asian Pacific Americans’ (CAPA) annual Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month Festival;
Organizing the OCA-FCC Asian Pacific American Women's Conference and Asian American in 2018 Conference with its sister chapters in NJ, Westchester/Hudson Valley, and Long Island, and Families with Children from China;
Engaging younger members of our community and to educate and inspire them to engage in issues involving civil rights, voting rights, and social justice; and
Working in coalition with many community organizations to plan, engage, and advocate for the APA community on a wide variety of issues.
Additionally, OCA-NY is celebrating its 13th year of collaborating with the Museum of Chinese in America (MOCA) and youth related partner organizations on its signature Hate Crimes Prevention Art Project, training diverse high school students in New York City on identifying and taking action against hate crimes and using various types of creative media to share how hate crimes have impacted their lives.
