ATG is an innovative resource that gives voice to significant, relevant and untold stories in our community. In true spirit of the definition, ATG Against The Grain Productions Inc. was founded to produce media and events that promote awareness and unity of Asian American culture and identity.

2014 is heading off to a great start with our new A(TG) Team! We welcomed back a few ring leaders, switched around a few roles and introduced our new ATG Ambassadors (formerly Street Team)! We're excited for the dynamic combination of professional experience and skill this team will bring into the new year to help increase our visibility, reach and sponsorship base.

For 2014, we plan to build on our succeses and strengths, continue to work with community partners to create greater impact and find was to grow our organization's following. We will nearly double our giving from last year - earmarking $22,500 in aid to our supported orphanages in Vietnam and Thailand, while expanding our reach to Cambodia and The Phiippines. We will help families right here in the U.S. by giving $8,000 in Artistic and Groundbreaker Leadership Scholarships, in addition to $1,000 in scholarships for young adoptees to attend culture/heritage camps. We will continue to host Fashion for  a Passion, a charity event that promotes Asian American fashion, art and music talent, as well as provide more inspiration and motiviation for leadership though Groundbreakers Speak. We will partners with schools and non-profit groups to share screenings of Operation Babylift around the globe to provoke meaningful conversation about identity and adoption. Please continue to an active participant in our mission to achieve "One Voice. Many Stories."
