AAPIs encompass a highly diverse array of communities speaking over 48 languages and hailing from countries comprising approximately 60% of the world’s population, yet share this statistic in the United States: they are the least familiar with and therefore the least likely to be counted in the Census.
While foundations have already developed their Census strategy and made grants, this webinar will provide additional tools to bring AAPI communities into sharper focus. Our guest speakers will provide a landscape overview of philanthropic and community Census efforts in AAPI communities locally and nationally, illuminate funding gaps and barriers to community engagement, and walk through the new Census Mapping Tool which provides detailed census-tract level maps for the largest 20 metropolitan for Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders in the United States. We will also reserve time for questions and discussion.
Please join us for an illuminating discussion on 2020 Census efforts and gaps in AAPI communities led by Karthick Ramakrishnan, Founder and Director of AAPI Data, Karen Narasaki, consultant to the Bauman Foundation, and Christine Chen, Founder and Director of APIA Vote!
