#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.

Our worker members are in essential and low-wage industries and are working in the frontlines as domestic workers, Uber/Lyft drivers, grocery store workers, delivery services, restaurant workers, and healthcare workers. Many are also unable to go to work and are not eligible for any of the federal relief packages or unemployment from the state. And many live in some of the hardest-hit zip codes in the country. This crisis demonstrates the harrowing realities of our current social and economic systems and the way it affects those that are extremely vulnerable.
