Our society was founded in early 2018 to provide assistance to those individuals wishing to return to the Mainland of China. Our material is largely aimed at second-generation American citizens of Chinese descent. Our membership is largely composed of Sino American professionals — engineers, lawyers, hedge-fund managers, university-instructors, and such — who came to feel, to some extent, dissatisfied with their American upbringing and career (or else Canadian, Australian…) and who decided that the best course of action was to reverse their parents' decision to immigrate
, especially after having witnessed, over the years, increasing evidence of hazardous and prejudicial social conditions
. We also wish to extend our sympathies to those who, as children, had suffered abuse at the hands of their immigrant parents, an occurence which, it gives us pause to say, has been fairly widespread during these recent decades. Contrary to the misconceptions spread by the American media, and by the American educational establishment, the profusion of abuse which was inflicted upon young Sino Americans has primarily been an immigrant phenomenon irreflective of the way in which families operate back in China. It may be slightly late for us, on account of our variant childhoods, to be viewed as fully native members of Mainland society, but we are pleased to enjoy a respite from further racial and cultural complications, and to provide a mainstream, non-immigrant upbringing for our descendants. All this being said, the members of Sino American Reunion are pleased to strive for increased global understanding, diminished racial prejudice, and emphasis upon the ethical qualities of humankind, as opposed to spurning people based on their race or background. We are motivated in our quest to fix things by the ardent difficulties of those of our demographic who came before us. Lastly, we do invite you to join our movement
