About

MANAA is an all-volunteer, non-profit organization dedicated to monitoring the media and advocating balanced, sensitive, and positive coverage and portrayals of Asian Americans. Formed in 1992, it has pushed the television and motion picture industries to include more Asian Americans in their projects and educated Hollywood about the stereotypes that have often plagued the APA community.

Get Involved

The easiest way to find out what is going on at MANAA and how to participate is to visit one of our monthly meetings (third Thursday of each month; second Thursday in December). The monthly general meeting start at 7:30 PM are currently held in the the upstairs meeting room of the Chinatown Public Safety Association in Los Angeles Chinatown. We welcome your input and thoughts on pressing issues regarding the portrayal of Asian Americans in print, radio, television and movies. MANAA is also looking for volunteers to help:

  • Report on the APA outlook in TV shows, movies, etc.
  • Investigate complaints.
  • Contribute content to the website and newsletter.
  • Draft letters when the media does something that deserves a thumbs-down (or a thumbs-up!)
