The Asian-American and Pacific Islander community is growing faster than any other ethnic group in the United States. And with migration being a key driver of that growth, the AAPI community has the greatest proportion of immigrants of any U.S. ethnicity. Using a familiar stereotype - the "model minority" myth - as a starting point, the panel digs into the true AAPI story, covering this population's struggles with unemployment, access to education, language barriers, and poverty - and poses ideas and solutions that can help advance the community forward. In the fifth and final segment of Comcast Newsmakers Presents: The State of the AAPI Community, host Ellee Pai Hong and guests look to what's ahead for America's fastest-growing ethnic group.
Host Ellee Pai Hong leads a groundbreaking roundtable discussion with AAPI community leaders:
Christopher Kang, National Director of the National Coalition of Asian Pacific Americans
Seema Agnani, Executive Director of the National Coalition for Asian Pacific American Community Development
Quyen Dinh, Executive Director of the Southeast Asia Resource Action Center
