    About East Wind ezine

    East Wind ezine is an online publication focused on political and cultural issues of Asian Pacific Americans. New articles/posts are added every month as they arrive to us.  All of the artists, writers, designers and videographers donate all or part of their time to create the content.  Our goal is to inform our readers about critical issues such as immigration, civil and human rights, and identity and culture as a step to increase Asian Pacific American participation in movements for social change.

    Many of the volunteers for East Wind ezine also worked on East Wind: Politics and Culture of Asians in the U.S., which was published twice a year from 1982 to 1989 by Getting Together Publications.  Although many of us are now in our retirement years, we continue to be active or have renewed our activism in the face of the rightwing and racist policies of the current administration.  Furthermore, we wish to build bridges with younger generations of activists to forge a stronger movement.

    If you are interested in submitting articles or artwork or have suggestions for topics we should cover, please write to East Wind ezine via the contact us page on the website.

  • Vanishing Chinatown: The World of The May’s Photo Studio

    APICC is proud to fiscally sponsor the upcoming film project Vanishing Chinatown: The World of The May’s Photo Studio (formerly "Trashed: The Lost World of May's Photo Studio"). Donations to the project can be made on this page through APICC as a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. 

    From the producers of Vanishing Chinatown:
    Vanishing Chinatown: The World of The May’s Photo Studio tells the story of hundreds of photographs serendipitously rescued from a San Francisco Chinatown dumpster. The work of  The May’s Photo Studio documents an immigrant community becoming westernized, exploring themes of identity, family ties, and racially-based laws, specifically the Chinese Exclusion Act. The artistry of the photographers bring the Cantonese opera to life as well, presenting a Chinese community through the eyes of these important Chinese-American photographers.

    Support us with your generous gift.

    For more information, go to the Vanishing Chinatown website.
