12/11/21 City of Cupertino's Panel Discussion on Chinese Exclusion Act

December 11, 2021 5:38 PM | Elyse Wong (Administrator)


On December 11, 2021, Cupertino Mayor Darcy Paul hosted a panel discussion regarding the Chinese Exclusion Act. The 1882 law made it illegal for Chinese workers to come to America and for Chinese nationals already in the U.S. to become citizens.

The panel included Stanford University professor Gordon Chang, author/CHCP member Connie Young Yu, and Executive Director of the Angel Island Immigration Station Foundation Edward Tepporn.
