SHIFTING NARRATIVES: USING AAPI WEALTH DATA for RACIAL JUSTICE
May 31, 2018, 11:00 AM - 12:15 PM PT

A collaborative webinar with the Asset Buliding Policy Network (ABPN) about Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) Wealth data and the importance of including more nuanced data about AAPIs, in order to counter the post-racial narrative that uses AAPI wealth status data to make the case that institutional racism no longer exists. Join us as we reflect on the historical context of AAPIs in the U.S., examine the challenges in data about AAPI groups across time, and engage in a discussion of AAPI data and wealth narratives in the current climate.

Speakers: Seema Agnani, Jeremie Greer, Soya Jung, and C. Aujean Lee
