When & Where
Asian-American Cultural Circle of Unity
The Asian-American Cultural Circle of Unity’s mission is to foster cultural awareness and appreciation of the many different Asian cultures represented here in the United States. As a 501c3, we seek to showcase the traditions and heritage of the Asian-American population through festivals, programs, seminars, exhibits, films and lectures. For the non-Asian population, we outreach to their communities, inviting them to learn, participate, and share. Our ultimate goal is to break down the cultural barriers that separate the Asian-Americans from one another as well as those who are not of Asian ancestry. By celebrating our differences we are, at the same time, recognizing the opportunity to unify.
