MOCA Goes Global!

Yue Ma & Claire Mondry

MOCA goes global! In support of our newest initiative – MOCA Spike 150, our friend Johnson Shen climbed to the summit of Mount Aconcagua in Argentina (the highest mountain outside of Asia!) in a 12 hour trek with high speed winds, all while wearing a MOCA t-shirt!

You don’t have to climb a mountain, but you too can get involved with MOCA Spike 150! This year is the 150th anniversary of the moment a golden spike was driven into the ground to mark the completion of the Transcontinental Railroad. To commemorate this milestone, we’ve launched the MOCA Spike 150 initiative to honor the spirit of the thousands of laborers who toiled and gave their lives to build America.

2019 is the 150th anniversary of the completion of the Transcontinental Railroad. To commemorate the contribution of the Chinese laborer to this monumental railroad, Museum of Chinese in America (MOCA) has designated its 2019 TCS NYC Marathon event as MOCA Spike 150 – Running Forward With Our Stories! We encourage everyone to participate through 1) our national relay and 2) a story a day which consists of 150 Chinese American personal stories. We hope you will continue to follow and support us. Go tell your story. Reflect on the past; root in the present and embrace the future. Let us add to the American history, making it fuller and richer.
