The United States is headed toward a multiethnic, linguistically plural and increasingly racially mixed society. Finding and telling the stories that help shape that reality is chief among the challenges facing today’s journalists, as is addressing visibility in the media for AAPIs. We'll explore all of the above at this participatory workshop + panel.

The program will kick off with a 45-minute panel, followed by a workshop. Participants will be encouraged to bring one-paragraph pitches that will be workshopped in the latter part of the session.
