A Report on the State of Asian Americans in New Jersey

May 10, 2019

Jersey Promise is about “advocating for Asian Americans and New Jersey.” As the name Jersey Promise suggests, we strive to reach our full potential as a diverse state and to bring the wonderful mosaic of our communities together.

For us at Jersey Promise, it starts by telling the story of who we are as Asian Americans, a widely diverse, heterogeneous community. In sharing our story, we take an evidence-based approach, so we have assembled some of the latest available research about the Asian American community in NJ and nationwide to present public policy recommendations to advance the causes of the Asian American community. We have also included the findings of our own original survey to give you a sense of how Asian Americans are living their lives in NJ today.

We hope the stories, studies and history enrich your understanding as we work together to improve life for all New Jerseyans.
