AB 176 Requires Disaggregated Data for API Ethnic Subgroups
(Sacramento, CA) – Today Assemblymember Rob Bonta (D-Oakland) is proud to announce that the Assembly Higher Education Committee passed his bill, AB 176, to uncover many of the social, economic, and educational disparities in the Asian Pacific Islander (API) community.
“The population of California is uniquely diverse, especially within the API community. There’s no place on the planet like it.” Bonta went on to name a few of the subgroups in the API population. “Hmong, Vietnamese, Korean, Filipino, Tongan….There are more than 23 distinct communities within the Asian American population and 19 within the Native Hawaiian and Pacific Islander population.”
