Paths Forward on Education and Economics

CAAL engaged over 350 Asian American leaders from across ethnicities, sectors, and age groups to inform its strategic direction. Two working groups dove into the quantitative data and guided key informant interviews to help understand the nuances within Minnesota’s Asian American population. Out of this process two primary issues were selected: education and economic.

CAAL’s path forward on education and economic focuses on four objectives:

  1. Increase financial resources to strengthen community infrastructure and meet the needs of Asian Americans.
  2. Collect better data on race, ethnicity, and language that can be disaggregated and shared publicly.
  3. Advocate for policy that includes Asian American priorities and voices.
  4. Grow civic leadership of Asian Americans.
