This new report, recently released by ABPN member National CAPACD, sheds light on the financial vulnerability of Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders (AAPIs) – a population whose true economic needs are often masked by model minority stereotypes and a lack of availability of disaggregated data. This webinar will provide new data highlighting how factors such as age, ethnicity, immigration status, and English language fluency influences access to financial information, services and products for low and moderate-income AAPIs. As the nation’s fastest growing racial/ethnic group, AAPIs warrant a greater share of attention by financial institutions seeking to grow their consumer base, as well as by government institutions and services providers in ensuring that this growing population has a safe pathway to economic security.
This webinar will feature:
  • Jeremie Greer, Corporation for Enterprise Development (CFED)
  • Jane Duong, National Coalition for Asian Pacific American Community Development (National CAPACD)
  • Joe Valenti, Center for American Progress (CAP)
  • Kiran Ahuja, White House Initiative for Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders (WHIAAPI)
Participation is free.  Please register for the webinar here.
