Our Diverse Nation: The Many Faces of Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders

April 23, 2014, 9:00am ET - 10:30am ET

By 2043, the majority of the United States is projected to be comprised of people of color, with the rapid growth of Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders, or AAPIs, counting as an important contributor to that story. Yet, there is a significant gap in what we know about these communities. For example, few are aware that Asian Americans have the highest proportion of immigrants of any racial group in the United States and that more immigrants now come from Asia than from any other region in the world. These facts have important implications. Part of the gap in what we know about AAPI communities is due to the lack of centralized and accessible data across outcomes—until now. Please join the Center for American Progress as we launch a new report series, "The State of Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders," which examines myriad social and economic indicators and makes recommendations for improving data collection for AAPIs. This series is co-authored with AAPI Data, a project of the University of California, Riverside, and seeks to make data on these communities more accessible and easier to understand.

'Noah' and the Nexus of Faith and Environmentalism

April 23, 2014, 3:00pm ET - 4:30pm ET

In his new film "Noah," Oscar-nominated director Darren Aronofsky examines the important link between faith and environmentalism. This link, while not new, is becoming more visible as the threat of climate change becomes more and more apparent. In fact, faith communities are becoming an ever-louder voice for environmental stewardship and responsible treatment of natural resources.
