The Chinese Progressive Association (CPA) is an American non-governmental organization founded in Boston, Massachusetts in 1977. The CPA is an agency that helps Chinese immigrants assimilate into American culture through citizen classes, English classes, and involvement in local activism. The organization has engaged in political action as the motive force behind Boston's Unemployed Workers Rights Campaign (UWRC) during the decade of the 1980s. Members have also protested for affordable housing in Boston's Chinatown following mass construction of luxury condos. Additionally, in 2014, the CPA has created partnerships with Boston supermarkets in order to bring job opportunities for Asian immigrants into Boston.
== History ==
The Chinese Progressive Association (CPA) was first opened in Boston, MA in 1977. The founders of the organization were patriotic immigrant workers and businessmen living in New England who longed for a connection to their home country.〔Marie Louie, “With One Heart Toward the New Era,” Chinese Progressive Association Records, 1976-2006. M163 Archives and Special Collections Department, Northeastern University, Boston, Massachusetts, Box 1, Folder 34〕 Today, the CPA consists of fluent Chinese speakers, manual labor workers, and low income families.〔Chinese Progressive Association, ("About Us: History," ) www.CPA.org, accessed January 30, 2015.〕
The organization is located in an abandoned garment factory loft in Boston, MA where many social activities are held such as apple picking, group dinners, and ping pong. Along with the social aspects, the organization also holds citizen classes and youth tutoring programs.〔 The CPA strives to create more working opportunities and better, more affordable living environments for Chinese immigrants residing in the greater Boston area.
