The Center for Asian American Media (CAAM) is proud to announce our end of the year campaign Stories to Light, Stories That Unite, which launched on #GivingTuesday last Tuesday, November 29. Join the movement by donating $35 or more to CAAM on our secure website CAAMedia.org/StoriesthatUnite today through December 31, 2016. Your donation to CAAM will ensure that we can continue to support storytellers around the world with the tools and resources to tell timely, relevant and compelling stories about the Asian American experience. In return, you’ll receive our thanks on our website!
For the past 36 years, the Center for Asian American Media (CAAM) has been steadfast in producing and presenting compelling and innovative stories by and about Asian Americans for a diverse world. We believe that the stories we tell offer insights into Asian American experiences, such as the inspiring voices of the Muslim American youth who have shared their stories, dreams and perspectives through the short films created in our Muslim Youth Voices Project over the last two years.
We are resolved to stay focused on this mission to celebrate diversity, build community, and share stories. We believe that ultimately, sharing our authentic selves and experiences ensure that we do not merely exist and tell stories for diversity’s sake, but to effect positive and lasting change in the future of our country.
We cannot do this work without your participation — as members, as supporters. Please donate today. We hope to see you at the 35th Anniversary of CAAMFest as a community on March 9-19, 2017 in San Francisco and Oakland.
