Share |
National Board Meeting  March 6, 1993  Arlington, VA

Resolution 1993-1: Be it resolved that the Organization of Chinese Americans (OCA) fully and strongly supports policies and issues that enhance the health and health care of the Asian Pacific Islander (API) communities. OCA will work to eliminate barriers to equal health care access; to support the collection of Asian Pacific Islander health data as a separate category; to remove discriminatory health care practices; and to education the API community about health issues and the greater community about API health issues.



Resolution 1993-2: Be it resolved that the Organization of Chinese Americans (OCA) fully supports the reauthorization of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act. As the act is the principal source of federal financial assistance for grades K-12 education including the Bilingual Education Act, OCA fully supports the reauthorization of the legislation as education is one of the highest Chinese values. As the Asian community is more than 60% foreign born, the need and demand for bilingual services will continue to be a necessary education component. We must support policies that provide for a free and equal education for all.



Resolution 1993-3: Be it resolved that the Organization of Chinese Americans (OCA) full supports legislative to establish a clear and comprehensive prohibition of discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation.
