Our (Short) History
As the world moved into self-quarantine, organizations, families, and individuals began to increasingly feel the side-effects of economic downturn and social isolation. Aspiring to help a community business and facilitate dialogue between individuals and families, Yo! Magazine started publishing articles, presenting recipes, and developing activities.
We began with a series of activity workbooks that were published for children, families, and a Little Tokyo business that was developing new and innovative ways to connect with a quarantined customer base. Realizing there was an opportunity for collaboration around the Japanese holiday, Children's Day, a discussion was hatched that grew far beyond the original scope. Four hours later, the first issue of Yo! Magazine was born.
Yo! Media presents the under-discussed topics that we believe deserve an honest exploration and related organizations, businesses, individuals, & resources positively impacting those topics.
Through the questions we pose, the insights we share, and the stakeholders we present, we seek to spur reflection, conversation, and action to contribute to our community’s evolution.
