    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.


    Eddie Wong, East Wind ezine Editor

    Eddie Wong is a longtime activist in the Asian Pacific American community.  He served as one of the editors of Roots: An Asian American Reader, the first Asian American studies college textbook, published in 1971 by the UCLA Asian American Studies Center.  He received his BA and MFA from UCLA School of Theater Arts/Film and was one of the co-founders of Visual Communications, the nation’s first non-profit Asian American media production company.  He later served as Executive Director of NAATA/Center for Asian American Media and Executive Director of the Angel Island Immigration Station Foundation.
