DRAGON BOAT FESTIVAL
OCA Sacramento has long celebrated this traditional holiday, also known as the Double Fifth (fifth day of the 5th lunar month) which has been deeply rooted in Chinese culture. The festival is a time to reflect on the importance of loyalty and commitment to the community. We offer community a time to celebrate our heritage and honor distinguished community leaders. The program includes scholarship and essay writing contest awards to children and youth. Each year, we encourage our next generation to express their thoughts and ideas in their own creative writing.
SACRAMENTO REGIONAL COALITION FOR TOLERANCE

The coalition brings together community leaders from civil rights and social justice groups, multicultural chambers, interfaith, educators, legislators, and lawmakers to collaborate on hate crimes and bullying by maintaining open lines of communications, sharing resources, in addition to outreach and education to communities.
