UPDATE ON RALLY: Due to potentially severe weather from Hurricane Joaquin, the 10/4 Pan Am Rally has been postponed to next Sunday, October 11 at 12:00 noon. Please join us on this date to ensure your voices are heard.

The Elmhurst Community’s outpouring of support at the past three rallies, the assistance by numerous elected officials and the efforts made by Elmhurst United have shed light on the problems at the Pan Am shelter and resulted in three rejections of the contract by Comptroller Scott Stringer. It is vital that the neighborhood continue standing together and voicing concerns on issues impacting our community.

On Sunday, October 11, 12:00 noon, we ask that you show your continued support by attending a rally at the Pan Am site, 7900 Queens Boulevard. We need to send a message to the Mayor to not sign the $42 million dollar Pan Am contract and that warehousing the homeless in shelters do not work. There are more cost effective and humane options, such as affordable permanent housing.

We need all Elmhurst residents to attend this rally as the contract has not been signed. Please encourage your neighbors, friends and family to attend to show their support. Attached is a flyer with details.

To Members of Our Community:

The members of Elmhurst United and the Coalition of Asian Americans for Civil Rights (CAACR) would like to invite you to participate in a National Rally and March on April 26th at 2:00 PM at Cadman Plaza (Brooklyn) followed by a march across the Brooklyn Bridge.

Recent incidents such as converting the Pan Am Hotel into a homeless shelter without prior notification, denial of reappointment to Community Board 4 for Jennifer Chu, the remarks by Councilwoman Laurie Cumbo who raised concerns about “blocks” of Asians moving into the public housing in Brooklyn, the failure of the Mayor to recognize the Lunar New Year as a school holiday, proposed changes to the admission policy for the Specialized High Schools, and the indictment of PO Peter Liang have inflamed the Asian American Community.

On March 8th the Coalition supporters organized a rally at City Hall that was attended by 3,000 protestors asking why Officer Peter Liang was indicted while other officers in far more questionable incidents were not.


Date: Sunday, April 26, 2015
Time: 2:00 PM – 4:00 PM
Where: Cadman Plaza Park, Brooklyn (A,C train to High Street Station)
William J. Gaynor Memorial
Contact: Chinese 707-722-2279 / English 929-999-8800

Please join us on this day of Unity to show our empowerment and demand elected officials use their leadership to help the Asian American community resolve our crisis. Together we can bring justice and equality for all in this important and crucial national issue.

Let our voices be heard!

In support of Elmhurst United, march with our banner and in unity wear a black top or coat.


艾姆赫斯特联合会(Elmhurst United)和亚裔维权大联盟(Coalition of Asian Americans for Civil Rights, CAACR)的成员邀请你参加一个全国同步游行大集会,在 4 月 26 日下午 2:00 在布鲁克林卡德曼广场(Cadman Plaza)出发,穿过布鲁克林大桥后在华埠结束。

纽约最近发生多件对亚裔美国人十分不利的事件,如在不通知社区下将艾姆赫斯特泛美酒店改造为游民收容所,皇后区长卡兹(Melinda Katz)不再度任命第四社区委员会朱亚薇(Jennifer Chu),市议员康博(Laurie Cumbo)发表言论指布碌仑两个政府楼入住的“亚裔太多”并建议根据种族分配公屋,市长不批准农历新年为学校假期,纽约州众议院提出特殊高中考试(SHSAT)制度录取的改革,以及检方起诉梁彼得警察等大事,激起亚裔社区的愤怒。

3 月 8 日大联盟支持者组织在市政厅前的集会,3000 多名示威者出席询问为何梁彼得被起诉,而在更可疑的事件中其他警察则被免于起诉。


日期: 4 月 26 日(周日)
时间: 下午 2 点至 4 点
地点: 布碌仑区卡德曼大厦公园(Cadman Plaza Park)[A,C 地铁到 High Street 站]
William J. Gaynor 纪念碑

Manhattan: corner of East Broadway and Market Street in front of the New York Presbyterian Church (紐約中華基督教長老會)
