The political and social landscape of America is rapidly evolving and Asian Americans play an important part in shaping what the future of America looks like. By surfacing stories around our roots, culture, and experiences, The Yellow Papers hopes to give our community a deeper sense of connection and empowerment about cementing our place in this country.
Relevancy: how does your idea help explore, define, or celebrate the Asian American experience? We’re looking for potential contributions that can help advance our mission.
Originality: is there already ample literature or media pushing this topic in a similar way you would like to? Even if the particular subject itself is already broadly discussed, maybe you have a creative or novel way of approaching it!
Craft: how are you specifically going to contribute to this idea, and what will you need help on from the team/others? Ideally, you have a general skeleton of what the end product will look like, and also a realistic picture of what you want to handle on your own (are you a writer? photographer?), and what you might need help on (an illustration? data analysis?).
