Raising Awareness in the Asian American Community through Film

Tinas Blueprint seeks to bring awareness within the Asian American community about the social issues they currently face. The social issues she will focus on will include the model minority myth, the bamboo ceiling, and voting discrimination. Through the medium of film, she hopes to educate and empower students across campus and members of the API community to organize for change. By collaborating with the Asian American student groups at her campus, she hopes to create safe spaces for dialogues and opportunities for collaborations and discussion between the diverse cultural organizations on campus. The short film will be screened in workshops and trainings and will be sent to various Asian American organizations across the nation to build visibility and awareness.
