A forum for dialogue, exploration, and dissemination of issues pertinent to APA communities

APA Compass is a collectively produced public affairs program.  Our mission is to provide a forum for dialogue, exploration, and dissemination of issues pertinent to Asian Pacific American (APA) communities; to unite, politicize and empower APAs; to raise awareness of social and economic justice issues; to highlight the parallels and intersections between APA experiences and the experiences of other groups; to provide media access, mentorship and training to APAs; to promote APA art and culture; to challenge racist representations and to enable APAs to define themselves. We welcome your comments and feedback. Like us or leave us a message at APA Compass Radio on Facebook.  For an index of past podcasts, visit apaCompass.wordpress.com.
