#WhoWeAre: APAHM

About the #WhoWeAre Initiative

#WhoWeAre is an inclusive digital campaign that creates a space for a national discussion about meaningful and relatable representation of the Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) community. Created by the National Council of Asian Pacific Americans (NCAPA), this campaign brings power to truth by calling out unfair representations of our community and elevating those stories that represent who we are.

#WhoWeAre celebrates stories, policies and individuals who understand the multidimensionality of our community.

#WhoWeAre Stamp of Approval

The #WhoWeAre stamp of approval allows individuals to quickly and easily assess if the content provides relatable and meaningful representations of the AAPI community. 

  • The “approve” stamp is typically affixed to news stories, policies, company policies and other social media content that portrays our community in a thoughtful and meaningful way.
  • The “disapprove” stamp is affixed to those news stories, policies, and social media content that does not represent the AAPI community fairly or accurately.
