News media plays a strong role in shaping the perceptions of philanthropists, policymakers and the general public, so it is critical to explore the media’s portrayal of different communities. As such, Asian Americans/Pacific Islanders in Philanthropy (AAPIP) is releasing a new study focused on AAPI news representation, Invisible Ink: Asian American and Pacific Islander Representation in the Media.
To launch the report, AAPIP, the Pew Research Center and the Asian American Journalists Association invite you to our May 24th webinar, “Invisible Ink: AAPI News Representation & How Philanthropy Can Strengthen It.” This webinar will present highlights from the AAPIP report to help grantmakers, journalists, researchers, advocates, and others gain a pre-pandemic snapshot of how Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders are portrayed in major newspapers and to what extent news media perpetuate the model minority narrative.
The webinar will also feature new research from Pew Research Center about the diversity of the Asian American population in the United States, with data on key demographic, economic, educational, work, and population characteristics from the latest available U.S. Census Bureau data.
Join us for the release of this new report and timely discussion. RSVP now!
