2020 Asian and Pacific Islander Complete Count Committee

Every ten years, the U.S. Census Bureau works to count every person in the United States, including everyone living in Minnesota. The resulting count guides the distribution of billions of dollars to Minnesota’s communities, determines political representation for the next decade, and provide data that shapes how Minnesota’s policymakers and business leaders decide to invest public and private resources.
2020 Census we count MinnesotaAsians are the fastest-growing minority population in Minnesota and across the nation. In order to ensure an accurate and complete understanding of the reality of Minnesota’s API population, an exhaustive count of all individuals in the 2020 Census is crucial. Establishing a statewide coalition of community leaders furthers the involvement, recognition, and relevance of Minnesota’s API residents regarding statewide policies and future population counts.
In September of 2019, the Council launched the Asian and Pacific Islander Complete Count Committee (API CCC). The committee identified a statewide coalition of geographically and ethnically diverse API community leaders in order to raise awareness of the importance of the 2020 Census in Minnesota. The API CCC's work continued through October of 2020, and facilitated the design and implementation of culturally responsive strategies to reach our API communities in Minnesota and ensure their participation in the 2020 Census.
