Our fundamental mission is oriented around helping the Asian American community speak its voice and creating a safe forum for readers to interact with activists and thinkers. We are building the Asian literary culture of tomorrow through our curatorial platform comprised of our events series and online editorial initiatives. Last year, we launched three magazines—The Margins, Open City and CultureStrike—dedicated to redefining what it means to be both an American and global citizen. These three online magazines have been covered in the New York Observer, Longreads, Curbed, the Village Voice, Eater , and the Wall Street Journal print edition, which devoted a half-page story to our launch party, which attracted more than 1, people.
