Implementation: Silkscreen, Session 2 of 4 - CPA Youth

Also producing material for the Silkscreening sessions are the youth from the Chinese Progressive Association (CPA).

CPA has a long history with grassroots organizing starting in the 1970s. In fact, the 1970s presented a strong period of Pan-Asian collective consciousness, and collaboration. Their website provides an overview of their campaigns through the decades, so be sure to fill in on their background information.

I asked several of the youth organizers (Tiffany Ng, Annie Liu, Jenny Deng, Edmond Tang, June Su, Emily Lee their mentor) about their designs, their work in CPA, and how it fits in to their development and ability to engage in critical dialog.

Although not located in the SOMA, CPA's work in Chinatown carries strong reverberations in the SOMA.
