Preparation work for the Chinese American Voice of Peace is progressing smoothly. 

Voice of Peace is an all-day event on October 24th to commemorate the 70th anniversary of the victory in WWII and the Chinese people’s war of resistance against the Japanese invasion. Jointly organized by Chinese American Association of Minnesota (CAAM), Minhua Chorus, Minghua Chinese School and China Tribune and supported by over thirty organizations in the community, the event has received widespread public support in Minnesota.

Planned activities of the event including grand music and dance performances and a lecture by a World War II expert will take place in Benson Great Hall at Bethel University on October 24, 2015 at 7:00pm. The venue for the historic WWII photograph exhibit on the same day has yet to be determined. However, there will be a WWII photograph preview and a seminar in Chinese at Kangle Senior Center on 5593 West 78th Street in Edina on September 19th. Updated information will be provided in the China Tribune and posted on CAAM.org and Minhua.org once it becomes available.

The commemoration contest literature pieces written in the Chinese language from the participants are currently being published in the China Tribune. The deadline for submission is September 15th. Anyone who possesses the capability in writing in Chinese is encouraged to take part. Certificates will be issued to first, second and third place winners. Those who have inquiries or are interested in submitting pieces for the contest should contact Simon Li at lihuazhi@gmail.com.

A T-shirt fundraising event on the weekend of August 8 at Minghua Chinese School in St Paul brought the total amount of funds raised to $17,000. The Voice of Peace event organizing committee extends their heartfelt thanks to all the organizations and individuals who have contributed to this date. A portion of the funding has been used toward purchasing costumes, printing theater tickets, creating theme T shirts as well as other initiatives.

With a goal to raise $35,000 to cover the remaining expenses associated with this event, the committee is exploring the possibility of hosting a fundraising dinner during the middle of September as a part of a series of campaign efforts. “We wish to emphasize that organizing this large scale community commemorating event is to respect this part of the history, cherish the memory of those who sacrificed their lives and advocate world peace. This event will only be possible through the participation and support from the public. While we are delighted with the fundraising progress, we ask for the continued financial support from the community to assist us in raising the remaining $ 18,000 to help make this memorable event a great success”, said Vincent Mar, the chairperson of the Voice of Peace event organizing committee.

If you would like to contribute, please make checks payable to "Minhua Chorus" and include “voice of peace event” on the memo line and mail it to: Minhua Chorus, PO Box 270473, Vadnais Heights, MN 55127.

If you have any questions or fundraising suggestions, please contact Bingwen Yan (612) 308-1980 or yanxx030@umn.edu.
