Committee of 100 Urges Community Support for Sherry Chen in Employment Discrimination Case

  
(New York, NY, March 3, 2017) — Sherry Chen, a former award-winning American hydrologist who was wrongfully charged in 2014 of spying for China, will have a public hearing in her employment discrimination case against the U.S. Department of Commerce on March 14-15 in the U.S. Court House in Cincinnati, Ohio.
Between 2007 and 2014, Ms. Chen’s work as a hydrologist at the National Weather Service was exemplary and helped to protect the American people from disastrous floods. Press coverage of her initial case, including from the The New York Times and CBS’ 60 Minutes highlighted the possibility of racial profiling. Although all charges against Ms. Chen, a naturalized citizen of Chinese descent, were subsequently dropped, she was nevertheless terminated from her job, despite having received highly positive work evaluations over the years.

Committee of 100 Urges Immigration Policy Consistent with American Values

  
(New York, NY, January 31, 2017) — As our nation considers how to define its identity through control of our borders, the Committee of 100 affirms the great ideals of this nation of immigrants. As an organization consisting of Chinese Americans, from those who arrived only recently to those whose families came more than a century ago, we celebrate the constant flow of immigration even as we understand the painful history that affected our ancestors. Chinese Americans in particular have had the experience of exclusion and expulsion, before achieving acceptance and equality. Our unique past offers particular insights for our shared future. We give pause when restrictive policies are not only proposed but implemented. These measures are judged to be ill-conceived in the fullness of time.
