Statement from Phoenix Chinese Week
March 19, 2021
For the past 30 years, the mission of Phoenix Chinese Week has always been to unite communities, share our culture, and educate younger generations on our unique heritage, through our annual Chinese New Year Festival and cultural outreach programs. We are grateful for the support of our community partners, sponsors, members, volunteers, and people like you. We could not have come this far without you.
The current climate has shed light on the continued need for fostering greater understanding between communities, and elevated the importance of diversity education and cultural awareness. Our organization consists of dedicated volunteers who are simply passionate about sharing their stories and traditions. While there is much work that lies ahead of us, we believe that together, we can learn so much from one another, build friendships and create a richer, brighter, and more inclusive future.
Here are some ways you can join us in our mission:
• Share our website with your family and friends. While Lunar New Year has passed, our virtual showcase of culture and history remains at www.phoenixchineseweek.org for all enjoy.
• Support local businesses who have been disproportionately affected by the impacts of COVID-19.
• Join our team of volunteers to help us further our mission of promoting cultural awareness and community. There are many volunteer opportunities available.
Thank you for your continued support and we look forward to seeing you in the near future.
The Phoenix Chinese Week Committee
