A Community of Contrasts: Asian Americans and Native Hawaiians and Pacific Islanders in California, 2013 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.
