The Chinese Association of Northwestern Arkansas (CANWA) is a 501(c)3 non-religious, non-political, and non-profit community-based charitable organization. 

Our mission is to promote, preserve, and celebrate Chinese culture, heritage, and community among Chinese, Chinese American, and those interested in Chinese culture. It provides a platform for people to connect, network, support each other, enhance the understanding and appreciation of Chinese culture among the broader community, and to support their integration into society, whether they are new immigrants or have been in the states for generations. Through various initiatives, such as Holiday celebration, cultural events, social gatherings, and educational programs, we aim to build bridges between people of Chinese descent and non-Chinese communities, promote cross-cultural understanding and exchange, and contribute to the diversity and richness of the broader community. 

Overall, CANWA is dedicated to preserving and advancing Chinese culture and values, while promoting harmony and inclusivity among all people. please click HERE to join us if you share the same view with us.
