CACS Foundation versus
the Chinese American Council of Sacramento

Chinese American Council of Sacramento

The Chinese American Council of Sacramento (or the COUNCIL) will continue to be the voice of the Chinese American Community; although it is expanding to include other APIA (Asian Pacific Islander American) groups who may be underserved and need support and representation.

Issues and concerns will be its focus. Social justice, discrimination, civil and human rights, voter education, legislation not in the best interest of the API community are a few of the examples the “Council” will make its focus. It may represent the community at City Council, County Board of Supervisors, and legislative hearings and collaborate with other organizations of like purpose. It will support the events of other organizations with like interests.

Canton Footprints

Canton Footprints

The Chinese American Council of Sacramento sponsored a very ambitious research book project in 2001. After eight years of oral history interviews, research and organizational development lead by historian Phil Choy and CACS board members Doug and Karun Yee, CACS published Canton Footprints, Sacramento’s Chinese Legacy.

This book focuses on historical relationships between the US and China, immigration and migration, personal stories of hardships and triumphs and the undefeatable spirit of the Chinese who settled in Sacramento.

CACS printed 3,000 books and sold more than 2,400. As part of our community outreach philosphy, we are contacting colleges who have Asian studies, Sacramento schools and libraries, and other Asian historical societies to give them a copy of our book. They may purchase additional copies at a discounted price, by contacting Karun Yee.

CACS wants to express its sincere thanks to those of you who have purchased the book for your contribution to CACS.
