It is in times of profound social, political, and cultural change, when storytelling can help heal, connect, and strengthen our communities. For 40 years, we have supported Asian American storytellers and advanced a more authentic understanding of the American experience.

With your continued support, we will keep doing what we do best: uplifting the stories and experiences of Asians and Asian Americans.

Here are two ways you can continue to support CAAM:

Membership Cards and Acknowledgment Letters
Our entire staff, including our Development team members, are working remotely until California’s statewide shelter-in-place order is lifted. While this order is in place, membership and donation acknowledgment letters will be e-mailed on a weekly basis. Membership cards will be mailed once the shelter-in-place order has been lifted. For questions, please email CAAM’s Development Associate Jonathan Hsieh at

CAAMFest Membership Benefits
Memberships with an expiration of date of March 31. 2020 will be extended through December 31, 2020. If you have any questions or concerns, feel free to email our Membership and Donor Relations Manager Jennifer Chu at

Programs and Events
We are exploring how to adapt some of our in-person programs and events to virtual formats. Our hope is that these efforts will facilitate a continued sense of connection and community.
