Seattle Times Publisher Frank Blethen is challenging you to support the Asian American Journalists Association with a donation to the Power of One campaign. For all donations from July 15 through Aug. 5, Frank will match all funds raised up to a total of $2,000.

The Power of One fund supports AAJA’s important work on increasing the number of Asian Americans in journalism and ensuring fair and accurate coverage of Asian and Asian American communities.

“With the challenges facing the industry, all of us need to step up and support the important work AAJA does for diversity in journalism,” Blethen said. “Maybe you’re a student who can give $5. Or maybe you’re an ELP graduate who can give $100. Join our family of supporters for AAJA at any level.”

Donate now at AAJA by targeting your donation to Power of One. Here is how to donate. Please specify that your donation should go to “Power of One.”
