San Francisco, CA -- (SBWIRE) -- 08/01/2013 -- CashAdvance.com, the leader in connecting consumers with responsible short-term loans, announced this week that they will be acting as a sponsor for Kollaboration SF.
Kollaboration SF is an annual event and movement produced by young Asian and Pacific Islander (API) professionals and students to promote a strong API presence in entertainment and media. They are an organization that formed in 2000 and officially incorporated as a nonprofit in 2006. Their mission and mantra, as stated on their website, is “empowerment through entertainment.” They seek to encourage the diverse talents of API youth and empower them through providing them with a creative outlet and leadership training that serves as an alternative to gang activity and delinquency for those at risk. They also work to empower API families by offering a platform for communication that bridges the gap between 1st generation parents and latter generation youth, as well as empowering the API community at large by raising awareness for critical community issues.
The organization began due to the barriers that many APIs face when trying to escape certain images thrust upon them by society. When it comes to the entertainment industry, APIs find it difficult to find jobs outside the “model minority” or “foreigner” roles, barriers which result in the lack of representation of APIs in mainstream entertainment, leaving API youth with few visible role models and a narrow pool of aspirations. Kollaboration works to bring a paradigm shift of perceptions and pave the way for future APIs to accomplish their goals and dreams in the entertainment industry.
Kollaboration SF will be hosting their 4th Annual Kollaboration SF Showcase on August 3rd, 2013 at the California Theatre in San Jose.
CashAdvance.com will be joining sponsors such as Verizon Wireless, Nielsen, AADP, and more. A spokesperson for CashAdvance.com explained that they were excited to be supporting the event, saying, “We at Cash Advance are very happy to be able to support such an important nonprofit organization that is making strides for the Asian and Pacific Islander community. We’re so excited to be able to help make their upcoming event possible.”
