With term limits creating 32 open races in the upcoming 2021 elections for New York City Council, the Asian American Federation (AAF) has released its briefing paper,Expanding Communities, Expanding Needs,” to increase awareness of the changing Asian populations in all 51 city council districts. 

“We put out the briefing paper on the Asian communities by City Council districts to help inform current City Council members as well as those running for council seats about the demographic changes happening among Asian American communities across the city,” said Howard Shih, research and policy director of AAF. “We highlight the challenges for Asian communities regarding language access, poverty and access to social services.”
