The 22.6 million Asian Americans in the United States today make up approximately 6 percent of the total U.S. population. According to the Pew Research Center by 2060, the number of U.S. Asians is projected to rise to 35.8 million, more than triple their 2000 population. Asian Americans trace their roots to more than 20 countries in East and Southeast Asia and the Indian subcontinent, each with unique histories, cultures, languages and other characteristics.

This presentation was created as a guide to assist you in learning and understanding the rich historical and cultural diversity within Asian American communities, as well as where things stand today in light of the surge of Anti-Asian attacks and the mass shootings in the Atlanta area and Indianapolis FedEx. These moments of crisis present an opportunity for social justice advocates to collaborate more and work collectively to bring about real change. We will discuss how we use the present moment as an opportunity to reset and think differently for how we serve vulnerable communities and create a more inclusive society.
