Our mission in serving the Asian American and Native Hawaiian/Pacific Islander (AANHPI) communities is to build better equity, inclusion and diversity through the power of media arts, especially television, film and new media. Our objective is to promote commonalities and build cultural bridges amongst all Asian American and Native Hawaiian/Pacific Islander communities through educational and media programs as well as cultural and networking events. Our vision is to advance the empowerment of stronger voices in television & film media arts by becoming a center for inspiring culture and media arts advocacy, education, vocational training and original content creation in serving the needs of the large diaspora of Asian American and Native Hawaiian/Pacific Islander communities in the US.
Asian Culture and Media Alliance, or ACMA, is a registered 501(c)(3) non-profit organization founded in 2013 by Asian American community activist and TV personality Cathlyn Choi. As a long-standing advocate for the under-represented, she believes everyone should have an opportunity to be heard, no matter their socio-economic background. Today, we have access to technology that allows any individual to connect to anyone, anywhere in the world. But yet, not all communities are heard equally. Many factors are responsible for how others perceive a community or how well they’re understood. One such community is the AANHPI (Asian American and Native Hawaiian/Pacific Islander) communities that comprises the second largest ethnic group living in Southern California.
Our organization serves to empower these communities through media arts, in a world where AANHPI voices are under-represented.
