Project As[I]Am (pronounced “as I am”) is an online space for Asian Americans to discuss how our identities relate to our work in social justice. Due to the broad range of answers to this question, As[I]Am is committed to creating a pan-Asian space where the 40+ ethnicities that fall under the label “Asian” may share their many different experiences. As[I]Am also encourages people of different gender identity, sexual orientation, class, ability, and other intersectional identities to share their experiences and approaches so as to explore the many varied ways one lives and works as an “Asian American.”

As[I]Am features multimedia content (audio/video), visual art, creative and non-fiction writing, interviews, organizational profiles, and other diverse media. We are currently a volunteer-run and staffed publication. Our proceeds go to compensating the artists, writers, and creators for their talent and hard work; a lesser amount goes to site maintenance and design. A subscription of $10 dollars per month supports the creation of our podcasts and all the amazing writing and visual art that go into our seasonal issues. Here are some of our favorite examples:

An essay by Alex Ngo on healing from capitalism
An interview with "Deaf Brown Gurl," Sabina England
A graphic novel by Tenaya Izu called "Space Monkey"
The Drop That Hyphen podcast

At this time, we estimate that if we had 25 subscribers at $10 per month, we would have enough funds to put out 4 seasonal issues and maintain the site for another full year. This means: your donation matters! On behalf of the whole As[I]Am team, we thank you for giving us the capacity to create and support independent Asian American media-making.
