The Asian American Pacific Islanders (AAPI) label is often used to describe those who descend from an incredibly large and diverse expanse of geographies, languages, histories, and cultures. This week Asian American advocates and activists dig into both the significance and the drawbacks of using "AAPI" as a catchall term for the richness and complexities in their community/ies. We also discuss some of the central issues impacting justice for AAPI communities here in Houston and across the U.S. Roundtable guests include Thu Nguyen, Muizz Akhtar, and Steven Wu.
