APACEvotes Stands Against Racism During COVID-19

APACE denounces all forms of racism before, during and after COVID-19. We explicitly denounce the terms “Chinese Virus”, “Wuhan Virus” and other racialized terms of this disease because we know this fuels anti-asian racism, hate and violence. We urge all communities to redirect their energy and actions towards addressing the root of this hate, which we believe to be ignorance and systemic oppression.

#AAPIsCountNC – Census 2020

As the only statewide Asian American organization advocating for representation and visibility of the pan-Asian community in North Carolina, NCAAT is deeply concerned about the undercount of the AAPIs in the 2020 census, particularly due to fear remaining from the failed effort to add a citizenship question to the 2020 Census form. (There will no longer be a citizenship question on Census 2020.)

When the Asian American and Pacific Islander communities are undercounted, political boundaries may not accurately represent reality. Undercounting results in Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders being denied a full voice in policy decision-making. As a result, their communities’ different needs may not be represented or prioritized according to their real share of the population. It would also impact how federal funding is allocated to states and localities. Many programs that impact Asian American and Pacific Islander communities are based in whole or in part on census-derived data.

NCAAT, along with other state partners, is working on strategies to get us a complete count in N.C.
