Each year, the Portland chapter hosts a panel discussion with Asian American state political leaders and reporters and tour of the state Capitol. We also lead media access workshops at AsiaFest to help AAPIs learn how to contact and work with local media and get their message out. AAJA-Portland funds summer journalism internships for Asian Americans, not only creating an extra position at local media outlets but bringing in a person of color in a period in which ethnic representation has shrunken drastically. We participate in career fairs for Asian American youth, judge the Chinese American Citizens Alliance’s scholarship contest, and host and participate in mixers and networking events.
