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. Part one of this five-part series kicks off with a candid discussion on the many communities that comprise the AAPI population.
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
