Creating Policies to Better Serve Diverse AANHPI Populations

While Asian American, Native Hawaiian, and Pacific Islander (AANHPI) populations are the fastest growing racial group in the United States, their unique challenges are not adequately studied or supported by current policies. This issue brief reviews the diversity and growth of various AANHPI populations and a beginning discussion about policies and programs to consider adopting.  This brief includes a map of distribution of the nearly 3.7 million AANHPI children by state, including which states have added AAPI studies curriculum.
