2018 QRIS National Meeting

277. Why are Asians, Asian Americans, and Pacific Islanders Missing in the Conversation about Racial Justice and Equity in the Early Childhood Field?

Date: Tuesday July 17, 2018
Time: 3:15 PM - 4:15 PM
Location: Marina 3

Asian Americans are often left out of conversations when issues of equity arise. This discussion will debate ways to engage Asian, Asian-American, and Pacific Islander families to have a voice in early childhood programs. We will discuss ways that “insignificant” numbers of Asian children and families need a system that is highly inclusive, promotes equity, and includes the needs of all young children and families. 

Presenters: Marsha Shigeyo Hawley, Ounce of Prevention Fund; Nucha Isarowong, Erikson Institute; Cindy La, Asian Human Services, Inc.; Choua Vue, Illinois Action for Children; Julia Zhu, Governor's Office of Early Childhood Development
