Chinese Progressive Association – Boston (CPA – Boston) is a grassroots community organization working for full equality and empowerment of the Chinese community in the Greater Boston area and beyond. The organization’s activities seek to improve the living and working conditions of Chinese Americans and to involve ordinary community members in making decisions that affect our lives.

CPA was founded in 1977 out of a series of community organizing campaigns around issues such as Chinese parents’ input into the Boston school desegregation process and organizing for community control over land development in Chinatown. Their membership is made up predominantly of Chinese immigrants and the Chinese-speaking; most are workers in low wage industries, working families, or low-income elderly.
