The Issue:

There has always been a communication gap between older generation and younger generation. This is especially true in the immigrant communities, and the communication gap is more serious. Though both are labeled as Asian American, the 2nd generation Asian immigrants normally are better educated, are more financially successful and are more mainstream than their parents. First generation Asian immigrant situations are different, their priorities are to settle down and to find works that could feed their families. They have different perspective on life and priorities. Those differences create communication gaps between 1st gereration immigrants and 1.5/ 2.0 generation immigrants. It cause a lot of misunderstaning. The “STOP AAPI HATE” movement is making communication more important for all Asian American groups, so they can be united in their goals, and to better support each other. It’s about time to start a meaningful conversation to address those issues.

The Solution:

World Journal would like to explore these issues more deeply, mainly through interviews and reporting (articles and videos), to help both sides understand each other’s point of views. We will make those content bilingual Chinese and English, and distributed through all of World Journal's print and web platform as well as on social media. It will be on going for the entire year, with different monthly topics. Content generated from this project will be served as reference or inspiration for future readers. Especially for new immigrants family seeking guidense, like how to better communicate with their school age kids, etc.
