Who We Are
Our Goal And Mission
Bay Area Cultural Connections is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that was established to promote mutual understanding between nations through cultural differences in 2002 by a group of volunteers comprised of businesspeople, engineers, academicians, students, and variety of people from different fields.
Our mission is explicitly formed to promote an academic way of life by teaching universal values such as love, truth, faith, friendship, solidarity, and sharing; to build powerful relationships and strong family values among the society; to bring good morals and ethics to our community; and to help establish a peaceful, lively, believing, and tolerant society.
Our vision is a community in which a variety of people from all walks of life interact and influence each other and cooperate to serve their communities, thereby strengthening community and promoting the growth of human values. The beauty of the diversity is a core value at Bay Area Cultural Connections. We believe that society with full of different values, traditions, and ideas is a powerful way to embrace peace and equality.
Through the intellectual interaction opportunities that we offer, we bring people together from diverse backgrounds and cultures in the forms of conferences, panels, art performances, classes, dialog & friendship dinners, presentations about issues, trips, camps, celebrating special cultural days, picnics, and festivals. We strive to create a community where everyone feels empowered to bring their full, unique selves without being ashamed. There is more work to be done, but with the help of people from all cultures and backgrounds, we can achieve the ideal peaceful society.
