Think!Chinatown is an intergenerational non-profit working from within Manhattan’s Chinatown. Our mission is to foster community through neighborhood engagement, storytelling & the arts. We believe the process of listening and reflecting develops the community cohesion and trust necessary to take on larger neighborhood issues and keep each other safe. Celebrating our histories is key to creating a safe space for our AAPI community to heal and grow collectively. Our aim is to overcome challenges of community organizing like socio-economic factors, language, and cultural barriers. We’ve built Think!Chinatown to push from within our neighborhood to shape better policies and programs that define our public spaces, ensure equal access to public resources, to honor our cultural heritage, and to innovate how our collective memories are represented.
