Chinese 百人會

The Committee of 100 (Chinese: 百人會) is a group of prominent Chinese Americans with the mission to "pool their strengths and experience to address important issues concerning the Chinese American community, as well as issues affecting Sino-American relations." It was founded in 1990.

Background[edit]

The declared key functions of the Committee are to serve as a bridge between the cultures and systems of Asia and America and also to provide a forum for those issues that Americans of Chinese and Asian descent face in bettering their lives in the United States. The Committee aims to serve as "cultural ambassadors" and to foster the exchange of ideas and various perspectives among its membership with those in the community and government.

However, one of the issues of the Committee is that their continued support of China, in American eyes, paints Chinese-Americans as disloyal and fifth columnists in general American society.
