Facing Challenges and Limitations, Where do Organized Chinese Associations Get Respect?

George Chin (founder of Chinatown History & Culture Association) will provide a personal overview of SF's Organized Associations and will discuss the roles of associations in the Community & Social Services. 

Additionally, Ding Lee, director of Lee’s Family Association, Ning Yung, Bing Kong Tong, Chinese Consolidated Benevolent Association, and Chinatown History & Culture Association will share his experience about associations and help answer questions.  

Chinese Tongs, or organized associations, have served five generations of Chinese Americans for over 175 years. They have earned respect for their contributions to the Chinese American community, but they also face multiple challenges and limitations. Learn about Chinese Family Tongs/Associations and how they impacted your ancestors and may impact you today:

  • Preservation of History, Culture & Education

  • Genealogy Research: Tongs have maintained membership and payment records for many years. This information can be valuable for people who are conducting genealogy research.

  • Challenges and Limitations of Tongs 

  • Where do Tongs get their respect?

Have questions about tongs or associations? Please email advance questions by September 7, 2023, to bacgg.gail@gmail.com and bacgg.jeannie@gmail.com.
