International Examiner: Four Decades of Life, Politics, Activism, Arts and Culture in the Asian Pacific American Community


Established in 1974, the International Examiner (IE) is the oldest and largest nonprofit, pan-Asian American publication in the Pacific Northwest. Named after the historic and thriving multi-ethnic International District (ID) of Seattle, the IE aspires to be a credible catalyst for building an inspiring, connected, well-respected, and socially conscious Asian Pacific American (APA) community. Our mission is to promote critical thinking, dialogue, and action by providing timely, accurate, and culturally sensitive coverage of relevant APA matters. We are a multi-media informational, educational, arts, culture, and heritage organization. We produce a semi-monthly newspaper and publish a literary supplement, “Pacific Reader,” devoted to the critical reviews of APA books. The IE provides opportunities for APA youth, professional, and community members.

“I never realized during these great decades how important the stories and articles in the International Examiner would be in documenting our contemporary experience. This is very important history that needs to be preserved.”

– Bob Santos
