A Message from President Christina Yu . . .
It is my honor to serve as President of the Chinese American Citizens Alliance, Oakland Lodge for the year 2015. My time spent working for C.A.C.A. dates back over 10 years and it has been a pleasure working amongst brothers and sisters who serve our community so generously.
As an Oakland native, I am proud to be a part of an organization that has served its community faithfully for more than 100 years. As President, I will continue our mission to empower Chinese Americans by defending American citizenship, improving educational opportunities, promoting political involvement, and preserving historical and cultural traditions. I look forward to working with you and continuing C.A.C.A.'s legacy to better the general welfare of Chinese Americans.
