About the AsianWeek Database Project:
For over 30 years, AsianWeek served as America’s first and largest English-language print and online publication serving the Asian American community. As the voice of Asian America, we covered, spotlighted and showcased the important and meaningful Asian American news, information and entertainment across the U.S., to strengthen relationships among Asian American communities with the greater community at large.
Today, we enter a new era in Asian American journalism. We are excited to announce the launch of the AsianWeek Database Project, to preserve over 1,500 issues and thousands of stories of the Asian American community. Our mission is to acknowledge the benefit of recording Asian American history to further educate, enlighten and entertain the community and beyond.

The AsianWeek Foundation works to develop the voices of Asian America. The U.S. Census Bureau continues to tell us that Asian Americans have proven ourselves in education, earning power, and other traditional benchmarks of success. However, the ability of Asian American voices to be heard is not commensurate with this success. The Foundation accomplishes its mission through programs such as the AsianWeek Newspaper Workshop and through affiliation with projects that promote diversity and cross-cultural understanding.
The Asian Heritage Street Celebration is organized by the AsianWeek Foundation in cooperation with over 51 organizations in the Asian American community. The AsianWeek Foundation is a non-profit 501(c)3 committed to developing the Voices of Asian America. All proceeds from the Celebration will be donated to local and national charities.
