Asian Americans Advancing Justice - LA

Building upon the legacy of the Asian Pacific American Legal Center

The Diverse Face of Asians and Pacific Islanders in Los Angeles County (2004)

Asian and Pacific Islander communities are among the fastest growing and most diverse in the United States. The ability to better understand and articulate their complex needs leads to new and improved programs, more effective advocacy, and better lives for Asians and Pacific Islanders.

But information on Asians and Pacific Islanders can be difficult to access and interpret. APALC’s Demographic Profiles compile data on API population, income, poverty, language, and other characteristics, presenting them in a clear, concise manner accessible to community organizations, government agencies, and elected officials.
