What is API?

Asian and Pacific Islanders

We recognize that there are different terms -- none of them perfect -- that are used to encompass the multitude of Asian and Pacific Islander identities.  While not everyone may identify using this term, when we use API, we refer to people with ties to the geographic regions of East Asia, Southeast Asia, South Asia (the Indian Subcontinent), and the Pacific Islands.
