第二十一集 | 美墨邊境走線者的故事: 追逐夢想與更美好生活 | EP21 | Chasing Dreams & A Better Life: Chinese Migrants at the Southern Border
自去年以來,超過24,000名中國移民經墨西哥邊境進入美國。由於中文服務資源有限,華促會受到聖地牙哥的人道組織邀請,分別於去年十二月及今年三月前往當地為這一批中國移民提供支援。今年三月的最新情況:聖地牙哥移民中心因資源匱乏問題而關閉,導致移民滯留於偏遠的交通站點,與家人團聚成為一項艱鉅的挑戰。華促會團隊從三月十二日至十四日每天向約四百名移民提供直接服務。我們也訪問了幾位走線者,探討她們冒著生命危險前往美國的原因。身為移民,我們秉持同理心,聆聽並述說她們的故事。希望從華人的角度講述這些故事,與主流媒體的報導有所不同。這些走線者其實和我們一樣,為了追求更好的生活而勇敢奮鬥,追尋著美國夢!Since last year, over 24,000 Chinese migrants have made the journey into the US through Mexico. With limited capacity to assist Chinese migrants in-language, humanitarian organizations in San Diego reached out to CAA to request support for the influx of new arrivals. This request led to our second trip to San Diego this March after our initial visit in December 2023. This time, resources are even scarcer due to the closure of the San Diego Migrant Welcome Center, leaving migrants stranded at a remote Transit Center, where reuniting with their families proves to be a daunting challenge. From March 12 to 14, our CAA team provided direct assistance to approximately 400 migrants each day. We also spoke to several Chinese migrants, delving into their motivations for undertaking perilous journeys to the US, even at the risk of their own lives. As immigrants ourselves, we listen to their stories with empathy, aiming to offer a deeper understanding beyond the mainstream media narrative. Discover the dreams and aspirations that drive these courageous individuals, as they strive for a better life and chase the American dream, just like many of us.

第十九集|青少年安全問題與心理健康輔助|Episode 19|Youth Safety & Mental Health Support
因應近日校園安全事件引起大眾擔憂,華促會聯同其他社區組織於三月份主辨了一場講座。今集節目進一步探討疫情後移民家庭的小朋友在心理健康及學業上面對的挑戰。今集開首,MLK初中的家庭聯絡員李先生會先講述疫情對小朋友的學業表現和心理健康帶來的不良影響。學生長期使用社交媒體及其他線上活動讓這個問題變得更嚴重。接著,阿儀分享她作為一位移民家長的親身經歷,深入探討移民學生及其英語有限的父母在學校經常遇到的障礙。阿儀希望透過分享她的故事,鼓勵所有移民家長積極參與子女的教育,共同營造一個更安全和鼓勵的環境,讓移民青少年得以茁壯成長。 Together with our community partners, Chinese for Affirmative Action hosted a town hall in March this year to address the recent spike in school safety incidents. This episode further explored the mental health and academic challenges among immigrant children in the post-covid world. You will first hear from Mr Li, a family liaison at MLK Middle School. Leveraging his extensive experiences working with Chinese-speaking immigrant families, he shed lights on the devastating impact of covid on students’ academic performance and emotional growth. This impact is exacerbated by students’ frequent engagement with social media and other online activities. Subsequently, Ah Yee shared her lived experiences as an immigrant parent, delving into the common barriers that immigrant children and their parents, who often spoke limited English, encountered while navigating the school system. Through sharing her journey, Ah Yee hoped to encourage all immigrant parents to actively participate in their children’s education and to create a safer and supportive environment for immigrant youth to thrive.

第十八集|捍衛三藩市庇護城市政策|Episode 18|Defend SF Sanctuary!
本集節目探討三藩市庇護城市政策。這個政策自1989年起對維持公平及包容等價值相當重要,以及防止移民和海關執法局 (ICE) 濫用權力,針對移民社區作出種族歧視的執法。近年,有聲音試圖藉著打擊毒品問題攻擊庇護城市政策,將毒品問題怪罪於移民身上。今集開首,Angela Chan - 現任三藩市公共辯護律師辦公室助理首席律師 - 會分享她於亞洲法律聯會(Asian Law Caucus)當律師的經歷,並在2008年親眼目睹過百名移民兒童被送到移民和海關執法局。這個經歷促使她成立三藩市自由聯盟 (Free SF Coalition),並成功推動通過三項加強庇護政策的法案。接著,我們邀請到華促會的外展員Anny講述削弱庇護政策如可引起華裔移民社區恐慌,以及她參與本地運動以捍衛庇護條例的經歷。 With a focus on San Francisco's Sanctuary Ordinance, this episode looks into its vital role in upholding the values of equality and inclusion and protecting our immigrant communities from Immigration & Customs Enforcement’s (ICE) racial profiling and abuse of power since 1989. In recent years, our City’s sanctuary policies have come under attack with an attempt to recycle the war on drugs and scapegoating immigrants for the drug crisis. In this episode, you will hear from Angela Chan, Chief of Policy at the SF Public Defender's Office​​, who shared her experience as a staff attorney at the Asian Law Caucus and witnessed hundreds of immigrant youth being handed over to ICE in 2008. This experience drove her to form the Free SF Coalition, which has successfully pushed for the passing of three local laws to strengthen sanctuary policies. We then speak with Anny, an outreach specialist at CAA, to learn about how the attack on Sanctuary Ordinance has instilled fear among Chinese immigrant communities and her participation in a grassroots movement to defend sanctuary.

第十七集|隱形移民故事: 一位來自香港的無證朋友|Episode 17|Untold Migrant Story: an Undocumented Immigrant from Hong Kong
無證移民是我們亞裔社區的其中一分子。目前約1.9萬名 DACA (兒童入境暫緩遣返計劃) 受益人來自亞洲。雖然有12萬名亞裔青年符合DACA申請資格,但是亞裔社區對無證社群存有不少偏見及誤解,以至大部份人仍然抗拒申請DACA。今集的嘉賓正正是一位來自香港的無證人士Yudy。自17歲起便獨自來到美國讀高中,Yudy分享她過去20多年無證的日子,包括如何跨越困境、險被驅逐出境,並追求她的夢想成為一位護士。她希望藉由自己的故事為移民社區發聲。 Undocumented immigrants are part of our AAPI communities with around 19,000 DACA recipients coming from Asia. Despite having more than 120,000 Asian youth eligible for DACA status, many are discouraged to come forward and apply for the program. This is in part due to misunderstanding and prejudice against undocumented immigrants among our communities. Our guest today is Yudy, an immigrant from Hong Kong who came to the US alone at age 17 for high school and became undocumented. From overcoming barriers and risk of deportation to pursuing her dream of becoming a nurse, Yudy shares her courageous journey of being undocumented for the past 20 years. Her extraordinary story re-defines what it means to be American and serves to uplift immigrant community voices.

第十一集 | 保育三藩市的廣東文化及廣東話 Episode 11 | Preserving Cantonese Language and Culture in San Francisco
從1840年代開始,加州三藩市城市發展與美國移民歷史息息相關,迎來不少來自亞洲的移民,尤其來自中國南方廣東地區的華人移民。目前三藩市的華裔人口比率多達總人口的20%,會講中文的華裔亦接近整體人口的18%。 即使有著相對豐富的華裔的歷史及集中的華裔居民,在保育華人文化及語言上,尤以當地華人的母語--廣東話,面對不少挑戰。今集我們邀請了三藩市市立大學教授廣東話的余天璇教授(Grace)及兩位在市立大學發起保育廣東話課程運動的學生Chester及Julia。 其中余教授會講述市立大學廣東話課程的歷史背景,保育廣東話及廣東文化對於華裔社區的重要性。Chester及Julia會分享他們作為美國土生華裔後代去學習廣東話的經驗及「拯救廣東話課程」行動的最新情況。 想了解更多「拯救廣東話課程」行動的資訊,請瀏覽以下網址: https://www.savecantonese.org/blog/save-cantonese-ccsf https://www.instagram.com/savecantonese_ccsf/ San Francisco has long been an immigrant gateway city for Asian immigrants, particularly for Chinese immigrants. Today, more than 20% of the City’s population is of Chinese descent and Chinese is spoken by more than 18% of residents. Despite the history and strong presence of Chinese Americans, the community has struggled to preserve Cantonese, a language that is widely-spoken by the local Chinese community. In this episode, we invited Professor Grace Yu, a Cantonese language instructor at the City College of San Francisco, as well as Chester Leung and Julia Quon, two student organizers from the Save Cantonese at CCSF campaign. They share about the history of the Cantonese language program at CCSF, their own personal experiences of learning Cantonese, why the Cantonese program is important, and how others can support the campaign to save Cantonese.

第九集 | 如何與Covid-19 肺炎病毒共存 Episode 9 | Navigating the Covid-19 Pandemic
在過去的兩年,Covid-19 的疫情反反覆覆,經歷了幾次的感染高峰以及不斷變種的病毒,公共衛生的建議指引亦相應調整。面對來自不同公共衛生部門的建議及網路上假訊息的傳播,社區人士往往很難去辨別並適應,尤其是英語能力有限的華裔移民。今集我們邀請到來自加州大學三藩市分校家庭及社區醫學副教授 梁醫生(Lydia)講解三藩市灣區的最新疫情情況,解釋何謂 Omicron 變種病毒?假如你感染病毒,你需要如何隔離?在保持基本社交活動的同時怎樣去衡量保障個人及家庭的健康。梁醫生亦會分享怎樣去理解及分析各樣疫情相關的資訊及新聞。今集的訪談以廣東話進行。 Over the last two years, the state of the Covid-19 pandemic has shifted as we experienced multiple surges, new variants, and changing public health recommendations. These constant changes and the spread of Covid-19 misinformation have made accessing accurate and timely public health information a challenge, especially for limited English proficient Chinese immigrant community members. In this episode, we invited Dr. Lydia Leung, a Family Medicine Physician and Associate Clinical Professor at the University of California, San Francisco, to share about the current state of the Covid-19 pandemic in the San Francisco Bay area.

第八集 | 移民故事:一位華人無證青年的夢想 Episode 8 | Immigrant Stories: Dreams of a Chinese Undocumented Youth
移民議題在公共政策論述及新聞報道當中,很容易簡單地被理解成兩黨政治化的議題,簡化為冷冰冰的立法草案。受到移民政策影響的家庭以及他們的故事往往被主流忽視,只是被還原為一個個數字號碼。 推動移民體系改革的法案的路非常漫長,然而無數的移民家庭及社區依然繼續堅持,面對日常生活所帶來的挑戰,持續推動爭取移民改革。今天的節目延續上一集,繼續關注華裔無證移民社區,一群相對沈默的無證群體。 我們邀請了代表東岸紐約市的亞裔無證青年團體的代表Ru,希望通過她的移民故事及在美國的生活經驗,讓我們對無證移民社區有多一份的理解。這一集以普通話錄製。 Immigration is often seen as simply an increasingly partisan topic of debate in politics or news, but immigration is also felt on a deeply personal level in individual lives. Beyond the halls of Congress, where talks are ongoing to push for immigration reform, our communities must live with the day-to-day struggles of immigrant families. This episode is the second of our two part series focusing on the undocumented Chinese American community, which is often overlooked and made invisible in national conversations surrounding immigration. In this episode, Ru, a member of the New York based AAPI undocumented youth group RAISE, shares her personal migration story and lived experiences as an undocumented youth growing up in the US. This episode is in Mandarin.

第七集 | 移民故事:華人無證移民的雙重身份 Episode 7 | Immigrant Stories: Chinese American and Undocumented
近年來,移民議題經常成為美國國內政治的頭條新聞,熱門的公共討論話題之一。目前在美的華裔人口當中,有超過60% 是海外出生後移民來美的,所以移民政策對華裔社區至關重要。一連兩集,我們會邀請兩位華裔無證移民朋友去講述他們的故事--尤其是帶著華裔移民及無證的雙重身份。 今集,我們邀請到來自東岸紐約一個無證亞裔青年組織 RAISE 的其中一位成員 Jeff 來分享他的移民故事與及無證的身份如何影響他的人士軌跡。 我們亦會探討為何美國華裔社區相對較少討論無證移民議題及經驗的固中原因,另外華裔社區為何需要多關注移民改革。 今集以廣東話錄製。 In recent years, immigration has increasingly become a central topic of discussion in American politics. Given that over 60% of the Chinese population in the United States is foreign-born, immigration policy is an issue which greatly affects the Chinese American community. In this two-episode series, we will feature two Chinese youth experiences of being undocumented immigrants. In this episode, we invited Jeff, a member of the undocumented AAPI youth group RAISE, to share his immigration story and how being undocumented has impacted his life experiences. We talk about why undocumented experiences are rarely discussed in the Chinese American community and why Chinese Americans should care about immigration reform. This episode is conducted in Cantonese.

The goal of CAA’s newly established Education Equity program is to eliminate barriers and expand opportunities for all students, with a commitment to creating universal access to racially diverse public schools, colleges, and universities that are high-quality and tuition-free. In this episode, Sally Chen, Education Equity Program Manager at CAA, speaks with Xiaofeng Wan, Associate Dean of Admission at a prestigious liberal arts college in Massachusetts, to learn more about how college admissions works in the US.

第三集:針對亞裔歧視及社區安全的反思 Episode 3: Responding to Anti-Asian Racism and Community Safety
在過去幾個月,相信大家都留意到主流媒體大肆報道針對亞裔的歧視及暴力事件。自2020年3月份疫情開始在美國社區爆發期間,華促會與另外兩個機構成立“停止仇恨亞裔和太平洋島居民(STOP AAPI HATE)”報告中心去收集相關數據,在2020年3月到2021年2月間,中心接收到超過3800宗的歧視亞裔的仇恨事件。 在4月份的語音節目,我們邀請到兩位在社區安全及正義有多年經驗的嘉賓受訪: 鄭小飛目前是華促會董事會副主席及“新呼吸基金會”創始人,分享他的個人成長背景怎樣影響他對暴力事件及社區安全的看法及背後的社會問題。社區青年中心行政總監温靜婷會講解宣傳 社區青年中心(CYC)的工作及如何協助在三藩市發生的暴力事件的受害者及相關的支援服務。 In the past few months, incidents of anti-Asian racism and violence have received widespread media coverage across the country. Stop AAPI Hate, of which CAA is a founding member, documented almost 3,800 anti-Asian hate incidents from March 2020 to February 2021. In April’s audio workshop, we talked with two guest speakers who work on the issue of community safety and justice. Eddy Zheng, CAA Board Member and Founder of the New Breath Foundation, talks about how his personal experiences have shaped his perspectives on how to address the root causes of violence and facilitate community safety. Sarah Wan, Executive Director of Community Youth Center, shares about her work on safety initiatives and victim support services for community members in San Francisco.
