Every year, the federal government allocates billions of funds for everything from hospitals and schools to emergency services and roads.
For minorities, the data can be especially critical for access to resources and programs. In this episode of our podcast Exit Spring Mountain, we examine what the census tells us about AAPI communities in Nevada.
How has one of our country’s oldest institutions evolved to reflect our changing nation — and changing ideas of race?
Exit Spring Mountain is a 10-part series from Nevada Public Radio exploring how history, politics, and economics shape the AAPI community while sharing stories by and for Asian-Americans and Pacific Islanders.
The production team includes Executive Producer Sonja Cho Swanson; host Lorraine Blanco Moss; academic research consultant Mark Padoongpatt; research assistant Nessa Concepcion; sound editing, mixing, and mastering, Regina Revazova; News Director Joe Schoenmann.
Support for Exit Spring Mountain comes from Arcata Associates Inc.
