Dr. Wen Chen, who was born in China at the end of the Great Cultural Revolution and intimately understands how the Chinese government brainwashes its citizens, will be the featured speaker during the Long Beach Republican Women Federated Saturday, June 13, 2020 meeting. The June breakfast meeting is being held at The Grand in Long Beach (4101 E Willow St.) with registration starting at 9 a.m. The cost is just $30 for members and $35 for non-members with free parking and includes a delicious served breakfast.

“This is our first meeting since the lockdown and The Grand has procedures in place to protect our members, guests and their employees,” explained President Lois Ledger. “With China and Hong Kong making daily headline news, this will be an extremely important and informative meeting.”

Chen’s parents witnessed the horrific atrocities in China that resulted in the murder of two million intellectuals and destroyed Chinese culture. This led them to have reservations about her education. Yet Chen absorbed the Chinese propaganda while excelling in school; winning a national prize at a science competition when she was 16 years old. That offered her the opportunity to attend a top university for undergraduate study. In 1994, Chen came to the United States for graduate school and in 2000 received a doctorate in Biology at the California Institute of Technology. Knowing how she had been brainwashed growing up in China, Chen decided to be a voice for the voiceless. Since 2012, she has given over 200 presentations about Chinese culture, history and human rights to community organizations. A member of the Caltech scientific staff since 2000, Chen is an active member of Amnesty International (Pasadena chapter) and a board member for Caltech Women in Biology and Bioengineer. She lives in Pasadena with her husband and two teenage daughters.

The community is invited to join like-minded women and men who are focusing their efforts on Republicans taking back the House, increasing its size in the Senate and re-electing President Trump and Vice President Pence. The morning breakfast meeting is an opportunity to learn more about Republican Women Federated and how to be part of America’s largest grassroots organization. For information and reservations:
