We are deeply alarmed by recent opposition to the collection of detailed data on Asian Americans, with opponents comparing it to data collected by Nazi Germany to persecute Jews and single them out for genocide.
For over three decades, Asian American & Pacific Islander leaders, researchers, educators, and students have called for detailed data collection to better serve Asian American populations in need. IT IS TIME FOR US TO REAFFIRM THOSE COMMITMENTS.
The open letter in support of detailed data collection on Asian Americans & Pacific Islanders can be found here: www.dropbox.com/s/bzeytdaawhtduad/openletter-aapi-educators.pdf
