Our Vision in DC and Beyond

The Chinese American Museum Foundation’s mission is to advance the understanding, knowledge and appreciation of the Chinese American experience, by highlighting the history, culture, spirit, resilience, and contributions of Chinese Americans throughout our past, present, and future.

Our vision is to build a community around a continuous dialogue illustrating how Chinese Americans, culture, contributions, and potential are all an important part of the American fabric. We seek to work with organizations, museums, experts, and leadership across the country to tell the Chinese American story on DC’s national stage.
