The Helen and Joe Chew Foundation solicits AAPI mural artist for the purpose of a Chinese American Veteran indoor or outdoor mural. The purpose of the mural is to engage residents and tourist travelers to better understand Chinese American History and the challenges endured as a result of the 1882 Chinese Exclusion Act.

As of October 29, 2022, the Helen and Joe Chew Foundation worked with the City of Red Bluff, California on the naming of a street called Historic Chinatown Alley. Nearly 170 years ago, the City of Red Bluff was the last steamboat ferry stop during the gold rush era and as a result it had a segregated neighborhood called Chinatown. With the new street naming, the Helen and Joe Chew Foundation is working on drawing attention towards honoring its historic character and relevance during a period of time of nationwide discrimination.

This project is part of the Creating a Historic Chinatown Alley, a series-of-free-events in an effort to save a vanishing Chinatown from being forgotten in California history.
