The Only Bilingual Chinese-English Newspaper on the East Coast
In print since 1972, SAMPAN is published biweekly by the Asian American Civic Association, and is distributed free-of-charge throughout metro Boston; it is also sent as far away as Hawaii!
Today, SAMPAN continues to be the only comprehensive chronicle of local issues and events impacting Asian American communities and represents the only printed voice in both Chinese and English. Devoted to providing education and advocacy for Asian Americans in the Greater Boston area, the newspaper covers topics that are usually overlooked by the mainstream press, such as key immigration legislation, civil rights, housing, education, day-care services and union activities. These issues are crucial to the well-being of Asian immigrants, refugees, low-income families as well as individuals who are not proficient in the English language.
In its fourth decade, SAMPAN strives to increase coverage of Asian arts and culture, strengthen coverage of the Southeast Asian community, and provide news coverage of the Asian American population of the Greater Boston area.
