Why advertise with us?

Advertising in the IE connects your business to the everyday neighbors of the CID and the ANHPIA diaspora across the Seattle region. Our advertisements help us fund hyperlocal journalism out of the neighborhood, which has been historically overlooked by the mainstream media. Our outlet promotes critical thinking and engagement, advocating for local ANHPIA communities. We’re excited to work with advertisers that align with these goals.


As a non-profit, we understand tight budgets. We gladly offer a community discount for fellow non-profits, grassroots/mutual aid organizations, and CID businesses. It’s important to us to keep our rates accessible and affordable to the community we serve. Please ask for details.
