Our Official Statement on recent Anti-AAPI crimes.
Chinese American Parent Association of Montgomery County (CAPA-MC) Statement on the Tragedy of Atlanta Mass Shooting

On March 17, 2021, America witnessed another tragic mass shooting in our nation, and this time was targeted at Asian American and Pacific Islanders (AAPI) community. Since the start of the COVID-19 epidemic in 2020, thousands of hate crimes toward AAPI have been reported nationwide by Stop AAPI Hate.

CAPA-MC sends our deepest condolences to the families of this tragedy. While we are grateful that no such senseless crime has happened in Montgomery County, the anxiety and fear in our community is real. Locally, just last month, Asian businesses were targeted and vandalized at our neighboring Howard County (reports here).

We strongly urge the County government, and the public school system to take more immediate and proactive actions to prevent hate and bias incidents towards AAPI and all communities. We respectfully ask that:

Translated Montgomery County Department of Police Response to Bias and Hate into multiple languages.

Start an educational campaign on hate and bias incident reporting.

Swiftly investigate all reported incidents and notify the at-large community of such incidents.

CAPA-MC pledges to be a strong partner in this endeavor.

Respectfully,

CAPA-MC

We are sharing the following CAPA-HC statement. We are united against hate.
_______
We are deeply saddened by yesterday's tragic shooting in Atlanta. Eight people were killed including six Asians. Our heartfelt condolences go out to the victims and their families. This tragedy generated another round of panic in the Asian community in Howard County. One month ago, on the Lunar New Year day, six local restaurants including four Asian owned were burglarized and vandalized. Two weeks ago, a hate speech against Asian and Hispanic Americans were delivered at the Racial Equity Task Force. A staff member from the county government gave it a thumbs-up and acknowledged "Thanks, Bossman!" So far this staff member denied any wrong doings and is still on public payroll. The rise in hate crimes against Asian Americans is alarming. We strongly urge the county government and police department to take concrete actions to protect Asian community from verbal, non-verbal and violent attacks in all forms and from any individuals including government staff members. https://www.nytimes.com/.../atlanta-shootings-massage...

We are so appreciative of MCPS to invite our community for a super super ultra successful Back to School Fair at Wheaton today.

Thanks to all our student volunteers and parents for promoting Census 2020, Free Weekend Tutor program, and picking up some fun Asian game. Can't wait for next year!

The Chinese American Parents Association of Montgomery County is proud to announce the Alan Cheung Scholarship Fund!!!

There is a saying, “To lead, is to serve.” A great leader is someone who leads by serving their community from a very young age. In our local Montgomery County, with a more than 15% population as Asian American population, there is a great need to cultivate our future generations to be leaders at the community, state, and national level.

By establishing this Community Leadership Scholarship, we encourage, foster and recognize the contribution of dedicated youth individuals and youth groups.

"Hear Me Out" 2018 Essay Contest

How many times we notice that Chinese parents sacrifice time, energy, money, career and many more for the sake of their children, yet the kids do not appreciate it? We are all too familiar with the scene when kids say to parents: "You don't know. You did not grow up here."

We would like to foster great communications between parents and students. We would like to see families build strong relationships. To continue our effort, CAPA-MC, CCACC, Calvin J. Li Foundation, and UMCP Asian American Studies Program organized an essay contest. Parents and students are free to share all their stories and thoughts of communication - funny ones, sad ones, frustrated ones, successful ones, and not so successful ones.

Cross Cultural Cross Generation Essay Contest:

Due Date: March 2, 2018.
3 winners: $200/each
10 finalists: $50/each
