NCAPA Responds to Pew Research Center Study on Asians Americans
On the heels of the Pew Research Center study on the Rise of Asian Americans (see this post and this one), the National Council of Asian Pacific Americans has issued a response. Here is an excerpt:
The Pew Research Center’s study is an important conversation starter, but it should be balanced with a comprehensive understanding of community-based needs and concerns facing Asian Americans. We must acknowledge that there are a wide range of issues and concerns related to the economy, civil rights, and immigration that are on the minds of our communities. We need to move beyond one-dimensional narratives of exceptionalism about Asian Americans in order to better understand and address the diverse experiences facing our community members. NCAPA is committed to collaborating with researchers and policymakers to ensure that accurate and balanced information is provided about Asian American communities.
