While attending the Dia de Portugal Festival held at History Park San Jose on June 10th, San Jose Mayor Matt Mahan took time to visit CHCP's Chinese American Historical Museum (CAHM) and to pose with CHCP President Dave Yick and CHCP Advisory Board Member Art Low (father of CA State Assemblymember Evan Low).

This photo was taken in front of CHCP's framed copy of the City of San Jose's Resolution of Apology to the Chinese immigrants and their descendants, which apologized for the city's past acts of injustice and discrimination against the Chinese. The resolution was unanimously passed by the San Jose City Council on September 28, 2021 to acknowledge San Jose's past role in nearly a century of violence and discrimination, including the dismantling and destruction of the city's Chinatowns. On September 29, 2021, CHCP participated in a formal public ceremony which was held by the City of San Jose to commemorate the adoption of the resolution.

While at the museum, Mayor Matt Mahan was thanked for his role in supporting the passage of the resolution in 2021 as a San Jose City Councilmember.
