    Asian Heritage Issue
May 2, 2016
Celebrating Asian Heritage
The Asian Reporter celebrates
Asian Heritage Month with this
special expanded issue and with our
May 16 issue covering The Asian
Reporter Foundation’s 18th Annual
Scholarship & Awards Banquet. In
this edition, we mark heritage month
with a look at the Asian Health &
Service Center (AHSC), which is
working toward moving to a perma-
nent home, a new 30,500-square-foot
building in the Lents neighborhood.
Founded in 1983, AHSC started in
the 600-square-foot basement of a
church, moved to a 3,000-square-foot
facility in 1999, expanded within that
building in 2002 to 9,000 square feet,
and in 2008 moved to its current
12,000-square-foot home. The issue
continues with “Beyond the Gate: A
Tale of Portland’s Historic China-
towns,” a display of rare and seldom-
seen objects that tell a sprawling
transnational story of contact and
trade between China and the west,
focusing on Portland’s Old China-
town (1850-1905) and New China-
town (1905-1950). The issue also
Exclusion/Inclusion,” a travelling
exhibit that chronicles the complex
history of the Chinese in America,
from the early days of China trade to
the history of Chinese immigration
and the life of Chinese Americans.
Finally, our expanded events calen-
dar provides a monthlong guide to
Asian art, history, culture, and enter-
tainment. Enjoy!
