Pacific Underground is a show for and by the Asians and Pacific Islander (API) communities

There are nearly 225,000 APIs in Oregon. But in one of America’s whitest states, the issues that impact us simply aren’t covered. Imagine: 225,000 stories untold.

Stay tuned here for interviews, documentaries, audio essays, performances, as well as real-time coverage of national social, economic and political issues affecting APIs in your local community. 

Since the end of the only Pacific Northwest API public affairs radio program, APA Compass, there has been a lack of API representation in Oregon media. We believe that by creating a public platform in which APIs can tell our stories in a way that reflects our actual experiences, 

  • We empower our communities, 
  • We expand our reach in spaces previously denied to us and 
  • We honor the legacy of generations before us who have been left out of American narratives.

Pacific Underground is holding space for API community members who want to be heard. If you want to join us, email pacificunderground@kboo.org. No experience necessary.
