Finance and Administrative Coordinator
Monica Chan joined CPA as the Finance and Administrative Coordinator in September 2018. Growing up in Sacramento public schools, Monica has been passionate about social change throughout her childhood. She was later exposed to organizing in college where she was involved with student organizing for divestment from fossil fuels. She first heard about CPA when she became a Seeding Change Fellow in 2016 and was placed at the Asian Pacific Environmental Network (APEN). After her Seeding Change experience, she returned to campus where she co-founded an organization called APIECE (Asians and Pacific Islanders for Equity and Critical Engagement), which focused on building leadership, issues facing Asian American communities, and solidarity with black, native, and Latinx communities. In her free time, she enjoys craft projects, reading, and eating.
