|THE MISSION OF CHSSC|
"To pursue, preserve and communicate the history of Chinese in America"
Since the 1850s, Chinese Americans have contributed to the historical growth and development of Southern California's life and culture.
The Chinese Historical Society of Southern California was established to discover and recognize our pioneers and their history. We strive to increase awareness of Chinese American heritage through public programs, education and research.
Join us in a variety of educational and enjoyable activities. Our monthly program meetings are free and open to all.
Amidst friendly surroundings, meet people with similar interests and goals. We work with colleges, universities, other historical societies and local community groups.
The support of individuals and businesses through tax-deductible donations, memberships and volunteering is crucial to our plans to develop a Chinese Cultural Heritage Center.
The Chinese Historical Society of Southern
California (CHSSC) was organized November 1, 1975 and incorporated in the State of California in 1976.
The CHSSC is a Section 501(c)(3) tax-exempt, non-profit educational organization.
