Chinese for Affirmative Action has also been using WeChat as a way to expand their Chinese language digital engagement for residents with limited English proficiency, particularly when it comes to immigrant rights and economic justice. 

“We’ve expanded our work on WeChat as a platform to disseminate crucial, accurate and up-to-date information for the Chinese language community,” Hong Mei Pang, CAA’s Director of Advocacy, says. 

On WeChat, CAA shares articles and videos about immigration policies, affirmative action, the census and other news necessary for San Francisco’s Chinese community to know. It helps counteract misinformation and confusion, especially as the Trump administration continues to change immigration policies.
