Jeri Zeder has written a very nice article about the 20th Anniversary of the Lexington List which appears in the Oct/Nov 2022 issue of The Lexington Times. “The COVID Connection” section has a touching story about the Lexington List and CAAL.
Thank you Harry Forsdick for bringing the community together through the Lexington list for the past 20 years. This list has also connected Chinese American community with the broader community.
Columbia University, one of the world’s leading research universities, and Committee of 100, a non-profit membership organization of prominent Chinese Americans, today announced that its joint survey on “The State of Chinese Americans” is now open. CAAL is the partner for this survey.
The joint research will provide much-needed data to shed light on the demographic, economic, health, and sociopolitical situations of the Chinese American population, and inform policymakers and the public on the status and needs of the community. The survey data will inform timely and responsive policies, programs, and services.
The nationwide survey will be conducted online in English, simplified Chinese, and traditional Chinese. All adults self-identifying of Chinese-ethnic origin and living in the United States are encouraged to participate in the anonymous survey here: bit.ly/ChineseAmericanSurvey. The research is carried out by researchers of the China Center for Social Policy at Columbia University School of Social Work and Committee of 100.
Partnerships We are proud to be partnering with community organizations across the country in rolling out this survey. Our research teams completed a successful pilot study of the survey this summer, with the help of the Chinese-American Planning Council, Chinese American Women in Action, the Community Youth Center of San Francisco, and the U.S. Heartland China Association. Columbia and Committee of 100 invite additional organizations, community members, and interested groups to participate and partner in this critical research project, to amplify the voices of Chinese American communities nationwide.

Parents, students, and anyone looking to figure out their next step in life: you’re invited to join us for an evening with Boston College professor, psychologist, and author Belle Liang for a look into her new book, “How to Navigate Life: the New Science of Finding Yourself and Your Way in School, Work, and Beyond,” co-authored with fellow BC professor Tim Klein.How to Navigate Life has reached Amazon’s best sellers list and been featured on NPR and other national media.
There’s more to personal fulfillment than performance; but the “happiness mindset” of chasing our passions can leave us disappointed when we realize our expectations for constant happiness will never be met. So how do we make better choices that help us find our way to a more satisfying, purpose-centered life? As it turns out, there’s plenty of research to help. This is the topic for the evening, featuring an interactive presentation in a conversational format with Dr. Liang followed by a book-signing. Copies of the book will be available for purchase at the event.
