Wed, May 08
  • Presented By: Chinese Railroad Workers Descendants Association
  • at: Salt Lake City Marriott Downtown at City Creek
  • 75 South West Temple, Salt Lake City, UT 84101
This Conference is designed to educate, motivate, inspire and celebrate all that is Chinese America.  Centered around the contributions in building the Transcontinental Railroad, we will explore little known facts about our shared history in America.The story of Chinese in America has been untold for far too long.  Join us as we explore how the labor and lives of our ancestors were exploited, how our contributions have been overlooked or ignored in history books and how fearmongering led to murder and the Chinese Exclusion Acts.As the only race to be legally, but unconstitutionally, barred from immigration, our story must be told, the sacrifices of our ancestors must be honored and our rightful place among the champions of civil rights and social justice pioneers must be recognized.Experience this once in a lifetime opportunity to join with thousands of Chinese Americans at a historic event.
