Resilience of The Chinatown Art Brigade

Betty Yu and The Chinatown Art Brigade use art to raise awareness and give a voice to communities being threatened by gentrification.

With strong ties to her Chinese roots and the strong will of a revolutionary, Betty fights to preserve the history of Manhattan's Chinatown which is rich with perseverance and a sense community built during a time of severe discrimination.

The Chinatown Art Brigade understands the importance of reaching out to and involving the people of the communities they represent. After all, it is their stories that need to be told.
