15% and Growing: The Political and Civic Engagement of Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders in California

Lecture | October 15 | 4-5:30 p.m. | Faculty Club, Seaborg Room, The Faculty Club

Karthick Ramakrishnan, Associate Professor of Political Science, UC Riverside; Taeku Lee, Professor of Political Science and Law, UC Berkeley

Come join us for a forum on the political and civic engagement of AAPIs in California drawing upon the research of the National American Survey.

Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders are a sizable and
rapidly growing portion of California. They remain the fastest
growing racial group in the state, and also the most heavily
immigrant racial group in the state and country. AAPIs today
represent over 1 in every 7 residents in California, and about
10% of the electorate.

What are the policy priorities and preferences of this large
and diverse group of Californians, particularly when it comes
to health, education, and the environment? And, looking
ahead to 2014 and beyond, what will it take for AAPIs to play
a more central role in civic life and politics in California?
