In the Year of the Rabbit, The Serica Initiative will host a festive convening of world-renowned businesspeople, investors, philanthropists, foundations, nonprofits, and others who are making a positive social impact in the U.S.-China and Asian American space. Join us at The China Institute in New York City.

FEBRUARY 23, 2023 | 6:00 - 8:30PM EST

Serica Lunar New Year

The Lunar New Year celebration is a joyous gathering to ring in the Year of the Rabbit and to support Serica's ongoing mission: to galvanize a global community of changemakers to advance positive social impact between the U.S., China, and the rest of the world, through dialogue, storytelling, and our convening power. In addition to a fireside chat on “The role of Next Gen in building AAPI solidarity,” the event will include a cocktail reception, casual supper and networking, and honorees.

With your participation and support, Serica will be raising funds to support our latest Asian American digital film series. After the success of "be/longing: Asian Americans Now," our next collaboration with WNET, PBS's flagship station in New York, will examine the opportunities for allyship — as well as the prejudices and challenges — that exist between the Asian American community and other communities of color in the U.S. We plan to launch this series in May 2023 during AAPI Heritage Month.

To further support Serica's mission beyond the price of your ticket, please consider donating to our Annual Giving Campaign.
