The 2020 Census is coming! Join MOCA and a panel of census experts and community organizers to learn more about the census and how it affects Chinese diasporic communities across the five boroughs. What impact does the Census have on our daily lives? Who does it benefit, and how? What factors could lead to an undercount? How are community organizations fighting to make sure that we all get counted? We’ll be discussing these questions and more. Panelists include: Wennie Chin, Senior Management of Civic Engagement, New York Immigration Coalition; Carlyn Cowen, Chief Policy and Public Affairs Officer, Chinese-American Planning Council; Howard Shih, Research and Policy Director, Asian American Federation; Stephanie Zank, MOCA 2020 Census Manager, Museum of Chinese in America; and Karen Zhou, Executive Director, Homecrest Community Services. The program is moderated by Elizabeth R. OuYang, MOCA 2020 Census Consultant.

Can’t make it? Help MOCA get NYC counted by pledging to fill out the census here: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSdfPCkxGocGwKifMRRoEu6kfJT68Oa-FDoTWOYNPe_yUSp6bQ/viewform

Japan’s Alcohol Traditions: Sake, Shochu, Whisky and More

March 10, 2020

The scope of alcoholic beverages in Japan encompasses traditional drinks like sake, as well as Japanese interpretations of historically Western beverages. Japanese whisky, whose early fans included such luminaries as Jean-Paul Sartre and Ian Fleming, is today acclaimed as some of the world’s best. In this day and age, it isn’t even necessary to travel to Japan to enjoy some of the country’s finest alcohol; much of it can be found right here in New York. At this talk, Stephen Lyman, co-author of The Complete Guide to Japanese Drinks: Sake, Shochu, Japanese Whisky, Beer, Wine, Cocktails and Other Beverages, will be your personal guide to Japan’s alcohol traditions.

Followed by a book sale and signing accompanied by a sampling of Japanese drinks.
Must be 21 years of age, or older.
