Chinese Consolidated Benevolent Association From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia This article needs additional citations for verification .

(February 2016) ( Learn how and when to remove this template message ) The Chinese Consolidated Benevolent Association ( CCBA ) ( traditional Chinese : 中華會館 ; simplified Chinese : 华会馆 ; pinyin : zhōnghuá huìguǎn ; Jyutping : zung 1 wa 4 wui 6 gun 2 in the Western United States , Midwest , and Western Canada ; 華公所 ( 华公所 ) zhōnghuá gōngsuǒ ( Jyutping : zung 1 wa 4 gung 1 so 2 ) in the East ) is a historical Chinese Association established in various parts of the United States and Canada with large populations of Chinese . It is also known by other names such as Chong Wa Benevolent Association in Seattle , Washington and United Chinese Society in Honolulu , Hawaii . San Francisco[] Chinese Six Companies ( Chinese : 六大公司 ) refers only to the Chinese Consolidated Benevolent Association in San Francisco , California . [1] The six original Chinese Consolidated Benevolent Associations in San Francisco were already operating as separate entities with some degree of mutual coordination [2] before the first Chinese Consolidated Benevolent Association was formally established in 1882. [3] The Six Companies consisted of the six most important Chinese district associations of California at that time: the Sam Yup Company, Yeong Wo Company, Kong Chow Company, Ning Yung Company, Hop Wo Company, and Yan Wo Company. [4] Among their early efforts, they attempted to deter prostitution in the Chinese community, to encourage Chinese immigrants to lead moral lives, and to discourage what they described as excessive continuing Chinese immigration creating hostility toward Chinese already in America. [5] In 1875, they endorsed the position that continued Chinese immigration was resulting in a general lowering of wages, both for whites and for Chinese already in America.

In New York City , the Chinese Consolidated Benevolent Association (CCBA) was established in 1883. [7] The parent organization of the Chinese Community Centre, the CCBA was founded in 1883 and has represented and served the needs of Chinese Americans in New York City ever since. Historically it has performed a quasi-governmental role in the Chinese community. Throughout its history, business ownership has been a goal of many residents of Chinatown, and has been supported both financially, and through training, by the CCBA. Today there are local CCBA agencies in 26 cities

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
