Special Report on Asian Americans in the Northeast
Asian Americans Advancing Justice | AAJC has published a special report entitled A Community of Contrasts: Asian Americans, Native Hawaiians, and Pacific Islanders in the Northeast, 2013, a much-needed resource supporting growing Asian American and NHPI movements in places like Boston, New York, and Philadelphia with the latest data on the region’s diverse communities.
