Event description

Description

The Golden Spike Conference is centered around the tremendous contributions that Chinese Americans made to the United States amid the completion of the Transcontinental Railroad linking the resources of the West coast with the people and industries of the East coast. Tens of thousands of Chinese workers were recruited to work on the Central Pacific line originating in Sacramento California and ending at Promontory Summit, Utah where it was joined the Union Pacific line by the driving of the Golden Spike.

Judge Michael Kwan and Representative Karen Kwan are members of the the Utah Transcontinental Railroad 150th Celebration Commission. CRWDA is planning a conference to educate the community and general public on the contributions of the Chinese to the United States. This town hall will solicit input from interested individuals and organizations on workshops, programs, and activities for the conference.

You are cordially invited to attend the event to provide your insights and thoughts on how we can partner with each other to stages an event that changes and enhances the standing of Chinese in Utah.
