The International Examiner and South Seattle Emerald are excited to announce they have received a $50,000 grant from the City of Seattle Human Services Department to work together on producing content in 2022. The focus of this content will be to address anti-Asian racism, including verbal and physical assaults and hate crimes.

Both publications seek writers, artists, photographers and others to create content that will run in both publications January through August in 2022. Contributors will be compensated at ranging rates, starting at $250 per article/photo essay/personal essay/other. In August 2022, the content produced under this grant will be consolidated into one print tabloid and shared with educators to be incorporated as curriculum in schools and colleges.

We’re looking for your stories and experiences as news articles, personal essays, OpEds from community-based organizations working on this issue, photo essays, short videos, art, poetry and more. Please reach out to Jill Wasberg, editor of the IE, at [email protected] for more information, to pitch articles and for guidance on how to contribute to this effort. We want to hear your stories.
