Beyond the Model
MINORITY 2018

Raising Our Voices for Equity

The Asian American Federation’s mission is to raise the influence and well-being of the pan-Asian American community through research, policy advocacy, public awareness, and organizational development.

Through the Beyond the Model Minority Conference and Dinner Reception, the Asian American Federation will focus on dispelling the model minority myth that has stymied the pan-Asian American community in countless ways by offering a close examination of key topics impacting our community.

In the morning, we will release our latest report on poverty among Asian New Yorkers. Then, we will bring together experts on some of the most important topics being discussed in our community to answer key questions about immigration, 2020 Census, mental health, and economic development.

In the evening, we will gather for a dinner reception to recognize exceptional leaders who have helped to dispel the model minority myth and increase our community’s access to resources through their accomplishments.

The Beyond the Model Minority Conference and Dinner Reception provides AAF with the opportunity to highlight important issues in the Asian American community, pay tribute to outstanding leaders who have made an impact on our community through their leadership, and celebrate our community with our corporate partners, supporters, and friends.

Funds raised will support AAF in providing critical services to our member and partner agencies and the pan-Asian American community as a whole.
