US CHINA PEOPLES FRIENSHIP ASSOCIATION
- USCPFA is a National Organization founded in 1974.
- USCPFA is a 501（c）（3）tax-exempt non-profit educational organization.
- The goal of USCPFA is to develop and strengthen friendship and understanding between the two peoples of the United States and China
- National policies are established by the membership, which meets biennially at a national convention. A national board of directors implements national policy and meets twice each year.
- USCPFA is financed by membership dues, individual donations, local fund-raising activities and tours to China.
- We recognize that friendship between our two peoples must be based on the knowledge of and respect for the sovereignty of each country; therefore, we respect the declaration by the United States of America and the People's Republic of China that the resolution of the status of Taiwan is the internal affair of the Chinese on both sides of the Taiwan Straits.
- We also recognize that friendship between our peoples and good relations between our two governments plays a critical role in maintaining peace in the Pacific Basin and in the world.
- Nearly 30 chapters offer cultural and educational programs with speakers and films on life in China, organize activities to bring together Chinese students and scholars with local residents, and participate in community festivals. These chapters publish newsletters reporting their activities and events.
- Regional and sub-regional levels of USCPFA sponsor conferences, traveling exhibits, and tours to China, and also publish newsletters.
- USCPFA National publishes the US-China Review（USCR）, a 32-page national journal to inform members and subscribers about China's history and current development.
- The Center for Teaching About China（CTAC）provides a resource catalog and inventory of curriculum materials to stimulate teaching about China in elementary and secondary schools.
- USCPFA National organizes the Washington Seminar, a two-day annual seminar in the nation's capital on U.S.-China relations.
- USCPFA chapters, regions and the national organization receive educational, cultural, business and professional delegations from China.
- USCPFA National organizes and conducts educational tours to China, often in conjunction with its continuing exchange with the Chinese People's Association for Friendship with Foreign Countries.
- Everyone is invited to participate in our activities and anyone who agrees with the Statement of Principles is welcome to join.
