Ling Chi Wang Leaves CAA After 40 Years of Service

World Journal, Posted: Jan 27, 2010

SAN FRANCISCOAfter serving on the board of Chinese for Affirmative Action (CAA) for 40 years, Ling Chi Wang, who also co-founded this civil rights organization in San Franciscos Chinatown, will leave the board next month, reports the World Journal.

Wang, a professor emeritus in ethnic studies at UC Berkeley, is the only founding member who still serves on the board after CAA was established in 1969. Interviewed by the paper, Wang explained his departure as a well-planned decision. He said he has strong faith in Vincent Pan, the current CAAs executive director, for his leadership and passion in serving the Chinese community. Wang said he would continue to support CAAs work.

During the '60s, Wang was inspired by the civil rights movement led by Martin Luther King and later founded CAA to fight for equality at work on behalf of Chinese workers, including equal employment opportunities for Chinese reporters in the mainstream media.
