Join us for the launch event for A Community of Contrasts: Asian Americans, NHPI in the San Gabriel Valley, the latest report from Asian Americans Advancing Justice – Los Angeles.
The San Gabriel Valley is home to over half a million Asian Americans and 7,000 Native Hawaiians and Pacific Islanders. Its Asian American population alone is larger than it is in 42 states and in the cities of Los Angeles, San Francisco, and Chicago. This groundbreaking report provides the latest disaggregated data on the region and across a range of issues, including immigration, language, education, poverty and workers’ rights, housing, health, and environmental justice, identifying a number of critical community concerns.
The event will include an overview and dynamic discussion of report findings, providing community organizations, policy makers, and funders a unique opportunity to engage as they move to better address unmet needs in the San Gabriel Valley.
The report and launch event are made possible through the generous support of Bank of America, AARP, and the Wallace H. Coulter Foundation.
Community partners providing content and critical guidance include API Forward Movement, Asian Pacific Health Care Venture, Asian Youth Center, California Healthy Nail Salon Collaborative, East San Gabriel Valley Japanese Community Center, Pilipino Workers Center, Restaurant Opportunities Center of Los Angeles, and the Wilderness Society.
