ACE looks forward to a season of change in Chinatown. We continue to receive grants for historical, cultural, and neighborhood projects; we work with service-learning students and partner with many local organizations, presenting opportunities for historical pop-ups and exhibits; and we continue to work for revitalization of Chinatown and a community based cultural center and museum in the Republic Cafe building (see our summer newsletter for updates on that). If you are interested in supporting our efforts, please join us! Help us to develop and expand our programs! Become a member and volunteer and/or donate to ACE today.
