The newly-released 2020 Asian American Voter Survey revealed that a majority (70%) of Asian Americans are in support of affirmative action policies designed to help Black people, women, and other marginalized communities get better access to higher education.
“Attacks on race-conscious admissions policies are dangerous and harm equal opportunity for all.
The case against Harvard used Asian Americans as a wedge against other students of color, when Asian American students benefit from affirmative action and race-conscious admissions policies,” Asian Americans Advancing Justice said in a press statement.
It states further: “We still need affirmative action.
We urge our communities and all communities to stand on the side of equity for all students and stand up for affirmative action.”
