All Things Somali (ATS) is a community site about and for Somali’s where ever they live. We – the team behind ATS – are a forward-looking, young, dedicated, and enthusiastic Somalis. We launched ATS for one simple reason: there is no medium for content about Somalis in their daily lives and in their inspiring moments.
Journalism isn’t perfect, but far too long, journalism about Somalis has been all about the negatives. ATS was started because we got tired of all the negative stories that we see every day. The stories that don’t reflect on the human nature behind it. There are plenty of them online.
We want to focus on you – our fearless sisters and our passionate brothers. And at times you may ask us, where’s the reality? The not so positive news that people need to know. Hold us accountable because we truly do want to also showcase those hardships. In those instances, where you see posts that urgently request your help to take action or inform you of something that is negatively happening in our worldwide Somali community, we ask our readers to take positive action.
Collaboration, not competition, is important to us. If it is positive and it’s about Somali people, you will find it here. We are slowly building a people-centered site, so if you have something to share or change, let us know. We want to give you our readers a platform for stories of, by, and for Somali People.
Positivity is our Passion. Integrity is our Ideal. We Never Pick Sides. Politics is not our Business.
