is the oldest and largest nonprofit organization in the world dedicated to fostering an understanding of the Chinese experience in the United States through research, documentation, interpretation, and education. Founded in 1963, our goal is to maintain a research and education center and a museum to study, record, and exhibit books, artifacts, and works of art pertinent to the history and contributions of the Chinese in the United States. The CHSA Museum and Learning Center is located in the landmark Julia Morgan YWCA building in San Francisco Chinatown. Opened in November 2001, the new CHSA Museum and Learning Center houses over 50,000 objects, photos, and archives from Chinese American history.  The CHSA Museum has on permanent display, "The Chinese of America: Toward a More Perfect Union" and "History of the YWCA," in addition to a rotating art gallery for Chinese American artists, and the Philip P. Choy gallery for rotating exhibitions. The CHSA Learning Center also hosts public programs, lectures, and educational curriculum to promote the teaching of Chinese American history. Published annually since 1987, CHSA's journal, "Chinese America: History and Perspectives" is the only publication focused on recent research on Chinese American history. These resources and much more can be found at the CHSA Museum and Learning Center. The CHSA Museum and bookstore are open Tuesday through Friday, 11am-4pm, Saturday and Sunday, 12-4pm. For more information, please contact us at CHSA 965 Clay Street, San Francisco, CA 94108  tel 415-391-1188, fax 415-391-1150, email, web site
