UNITED STATES CHINESE CULTURAL FEDERATION
USCCF - A Bridge Between Cultures
Our journey started with the Phoenix Wushu Academy, where we offer traditional Martial Art classes to Arizona residents.
Phoenix Wushu Academy gradually became our little platform to gather the community that loves martial arts and performing arts. We explored small cultural projects through partnerships with organizations such as the Arizona Asian American Association and Chinese Weeks.
Since 2014, we produced Mulan and Dynasty, after recognizing the asks from the community for larger-scale projects with a deeper connection to the Asian culture through storytelling and performing arts. The success of Mulan and Dynasty elicited more interest from the community for more high-quality cultural immersion programs.
We also realized a missing link from the platform via the school: how do we give back to the community? How do we create a larger stage for our younger AAPI generations? How do we outreach to larger audiences and educate people the impact of the Asian American culture and our contributions? We realized that we need a better, and larger platform to serve, to unite, to educate and to propel the Asian community.
As the AAPI community struggled through the pandemic with the challenges of violence and discrimination, we feel that such platform needs to be established at this pressing moment to unite all the community, promote mental and physical health, give back and educate our youth about their amazing Asian culture.
Therefore, we established the non-profit organization: The United States Chinese Culture Federation.
Our mission is to promote Asian culture through martial arts and performing arts. We want to expand the AAPI community influence through educating and sharing the greatness of Asian Culture to all our community.
We want to be a leading non-profit organization to create a platform for AAPI Americans to unite and thrive through the immersion of Asian martial arts and performing arts. We aim to strengthen the AAPI society and promote its rights through the influence of cultural immersion programs.
Unite all communities through the Asian culture Immersion Program
Promote mental and physical health through Asian martial arts and performing arts
Actively give back to the community through our programs and projects
Create a platform for AAPI youth to appreciate their root culture
UNITED STATES CHINESE CULTURAL FEDERATION AT A GLANCE
A Distinct Identity
The United States Chinese Cultural Federation knows that our strength lies not only in the words we stand by, but most importantly through the actions of our initiatives.
We are a non-profit 501c3 organization set to help promote and bring awareness to Chinese culture and all of its beauty. This has always been our mission, because we know we have so much to offer to the world with our traditions and way of life.
Whether it is through culture, arts, sports, or health, Chinese culture is a treasure trove waiting to be shared. That's why we support Chinese Kung Fu tournaments, we work with doctors and medical staff to incorporate Taijiquan (listed as UNESCO Intangible Cultural Heritage in 2021), a moving meditation martial arts, to help prevent and treat patients with Alzheimer's disease, and we engage with our local Chinese community to organize activities to celebrate and keep our traditions alive.
We understand that our heritage is a key part of our lives and that it is our duty to support all events that promote our culture. We hope to find people who share the same vision with us and work together to preserve our customs and traditions for the future younger generations to come.
