The Federation of Chinese Organizations of America (F. C .O.A.) is a non-profit organization that aims to strengthen Chinese associations union and stands up for democracy and freedom.
The original of F. C .O.A. can be traced back to June 1976, when the world situation and the overseas compatriot associations are in chaos. Several overseas compatriot community leaders, like Larry Wang(Los Angeles) and Gāo Cháo Yún, got the strong feelings that it was the time to establish an organization, which can improve the benefit of overseas compatriots. Over the years, F.C.O.A. not only has activities regularly but also holds annual conferences organized by different branches alternatively to fulfill its mission.
The 37th Biennial Conference of F.C.O.A. was held in Chicago from September 7 to 9, 2022. There were 100 participants from the United States, Canada, and Latin America. In the conference, all delegates promised that they would keep following Dr. Sun Yat-sen's philosophy, making overseas compatriot community strong and harmonious. In the General Assembly, all delegates passed a joint statement, which shows their commitment to fully support Republic of China (Taiwan).
