CAA’s Chinese Parents Program

Betty envisions a society in which limited English proficient (LEP) individuals have all the necessary resources to fully engage and participate in all aspect of society a society in which multiculturalism is celebrated and not stigmatized; a society in which cross-cultural coalition is a known expectation as opposed to a hindered task; a society in which institutions, communities, and individuals openly communicate with one another to create the prosperous society we all deserve. As the Parent Organizer at Chinese for Affirmative Action (CAA), Betty develops leadership development trainings for limited English proficient Chinese parents in order to provide them with tools to advocate in their schools and communities. As the Education Advocate, she worked with students, parents, community leaders, and public agencies to address educational issues and policies affecting low-income, limited-English speaking, and immigrant communities.
