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.
What We Do
Through the stories we tell, the questions we pose, and the insight we share, Yo! Magazine presents perspective, inquiry, and thought leadership on the history, culture, and nuances of our community.
As we explore the ins and outs of our community, we'll celebrate what's great and take an honest look at what needs improvement. Every institution, family, and individual has a story to tell; we look forward to sharing those stories.
