Chinatown-International District and Seattle-area Asian communities have felt the effects of COVID-19 since January, and the IE is working to cover our stories, updates, experiences, activism and how we care for one another.

The International Examiner has served the API community for the past 47 years. It is the only media that reflects the voices of the Asian Pacific Islander community in Washington State. It has provided space for the community to celebrate success , share challenges, and advocate for changes required with a deep perspective on social justice and equity. The IE is community based, community driven media which has elevated the voice of the API community in our quest for equity and justice.
