Empowering New York’s Asian American Community Since 1989

Poster Series

I'm Really From

Getting asked where you’re REALLY from in your own hometown is all too common in the AAPI community. To flip the script, we highlighted 10 personal stories that show where Asian Americans are really from.

On first glance, they appear to be travel posters for far-away destinations. But a closer look reveals they’re actually posters for NYC, Houston, Seattle, San Diego, and St. Louis.

Donate to Hope Against Hate to get a poster of your choice as a limited-edition print or digital download. Downloads start at $25 and prints start at $150. All contributions, regardless of amount, fund critical programs that keep Asian Americans safe in New York City and beyond.
