A Community of Contrasts: Asian Americans, Native Hawaiians, and Pacific Islanders in California This report published by the Asian American Center for Advancing Justice attempts to address the invisibility of those most in need in our communities by providing the latest data on Asian Americans and NHPI from the U.S. Census Bureau and other key federal and state government agencies. Including important disaggregated data on discrete ethnic groups, this report works to dispel “model minority” myths by showing that many in our communities require access to social service programs such as culturally and linguistically sensitive K–12 education, unemployment benefits, job training, and health care. At the same time, the report promotes a better understanding of how our communities contribute to the state, demonstrating assets that should be used to strengthen California’s future.
