2020 APA Heritage Awards

Center for Asian American Media (CAAM)

40th Anniversary

The Center for Asian American Media (CAAM) is a nonprofit organization dedicated to presenting stories that convey the richness and diversity of Asian American experiences to the broadest audience possible. We do this by funding, producing, distributing, and exhibiting works in film, television, and digital media. For 40 years, CAAM has exposed audiences to new voices and communities, advancing our collective understanding of the American experience through programs specifically designed to engage the Asian American community and larger public.

During these uncertain days, CAAM is reflecting on our forty-year legacy of uplifting Asian American stories and building a community around sharing our narratives. When times are tough, it’s more important than ever to look back at our challenges and remember how we have drawn strength and compassion from each other. We invite you to reflect back on our milestones, learn more about the storytellers who are at the front lines of shaping today’s Asian America, and draw inspiration for the future.
