The Model Minority Myth: Impact on API Communities in Orange County

Please join us for an exciting panel presentation that will discuss the diversity of the Asian American Pacific Islander population in Orange County, including the rapid demographic shifts and different paths of migration which have no established Orange Couty as the 3rd largest Asian American population in the United States. The panel will also touch upon the varying needs of these rapidly growing communities, and the major challenges they face, including those stemming from biases and misconceptions associated with the "model minority myth."
