1. How are data for the AAPI Narrative Map selected?

We also included stories that drew national or local attention, or stories that were highlighted by SLN partners. To continue to amplify the vision and narratives of on-the-ground activists and organizers, we are using new themes to more fully include community-initiated content in this Narrative Map.
