Ambassador Gary Locke Lead Committee Of 100
I was with the Committee of 100 last week with the newly elected President Gary Locke in a virtual meeting. The topic was, “Rebuilding America’s Promise: The Chinese American Perspective.”
The Committee of 100 is a non-partisan leadership organization of prominent Chinese Americans in government, business, academia and arts. The founding the committee came from the renowned architect, the late I.M. Pei. He teamed up with master cellist Yo-Yo Ma and Shirley Young to recruit distinguished Chinese Americans from the arts, business, public service and the sciences to serve on the committee.
The mission of the committee is to provide leadership and act as a constructive force in the dual mission of promoting the full participation of all Chinese Americans in American society and acting as a public policy resource for the Chinese-American community.
Advancing constructive dialogue and relationships between the people and leaders of the United States and greater China is the overriding goal and focus.
Gary Locke was the first governor in the continental United States of Asian decent and the only Chinese American who had ever served as a governor of any state. He was also the first Chinese American to serve as a U.S. ambassador.
Today we as Chinese Americans are facing a big challenge. We hope that under the leadership of Ambassador Locke we will definitely find more answers to address it.
