National Board Meeting March 6, 1993 Arlington, VA
: 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.
: 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.
