With the 40th season of Saturday Night Live approaching, SNL recently tweeted out a call for host suggestions. We took the initiative to write up a list of Asian American talents who would rock the stage as a SNL host.
PSA – Saving Innocence
Did you know…
At least 100,000 to 300,000 youth are at risk for commercial sexual exploitation annually in the U.S.
The average age of entry into the commercial sex industry in the U.S. is 12 years old.
It’s a difficult subject to talk about. Many of us are aware of the human sex trafficking problem happening internationally, but did you know it’s also a large and growing problem within the United States?
On Saturday, August 2nd, Kollaboration is teaming up with Saving Innocence and Ford Theatres to present the Saving Innocence Summer Benefit Concert, in order to spread awareness on the issue of domestic human sex trafficking.
Enjoy a beautiful summer night at the Ford Amphitheatre for a night of empowerment and music, featuring five of the best indie artists and bands in Southern California. As always, you are welcome to bring your picnic baskets of food & wine.

We have all thought about it at one time or another: why are there not more Asian-Pacific American voices in the media? Well, it is time for our voices to be heard! Kollaboration is officially launching this blog as a part of our ongoing effort to promote APA visibility in the media. This blog will serve as a positive yet critical space for passionate writers to use their voices to create conversations on issues and topics most pertinent to the APA community. We hope to contribute to the continuing conversations and engagements of today’s happenings.
Given that our issues rarely receive mass media coverage, we believe it is up to ourselves to take the lead in empowering our community to create change. Our blog will celebrate the many accomplishments made by APA figures by starting conversations centered around various topics in music, film, television, fashion, and more.
Join us on this journey as we discuss, share, and learn.
We all have a voice—now let’s use it.
