Workers at the Museum of Chinese in America allege that Nancy Yao was retaliatory toward employees who reported harassment.

“Institutions like MOCA are facilitating the destruction of our community under the cover of social justice,” said activist Yanin Peña.

Some 200 boxes have already been recovered and are “very much salvageable,” says museum president Nancy Yao Maasbach.
