“Raising AAPI Youth Visibility” Report Released!

CLICK HERE FOR THE FULL REPORT!

We are pleased to announce the “Visibility for AAPI Youth” report published by Asian Health Services, AYPAL: Building API Community Power, and Banteay Srei! This report analyzes disaggregated data from over 400 Asian American Pacific Islander (AAPI) completed youth surveys in Oakland public schools. The fact that a data set of this kind, which highlights the various experiences within the large AAPI umbrella, did not previously exist has been the primary motivation behind collecting and creating this report. We hope this document sheds light on the need for more specific, disaggregated data amongst AAPI communities and other communities whose stories often go untold.

 

  • This data was driven by community organizations that noticed a dearth in relevant data about the youth they serve and work with.

 

  • Data collected for this report was utilized to pass a “Disaggregated Data Resolution” for AAPI youth in the Oakland Unified School District; this is the first district in the state for have a resolution of this kind.

 

  • We see the push for disaggregated data as an effort to highlight differences and similarities to inform efforts that would promote equity in health, socio-economics, and education. In doing so, it will help to further unite our diverse population by empowering us with accurate knowledge.
