Bong Joon Ho, Ali Wong, Dwayne Johnson and others are being honored as a part of nonprofit collective Gold House’s third annual A100 List to celebrate Asians and Asian American and Pacific Islanders (AAPIs) and their transformative contributions to society.
This year’s A100 launched in partnership with the 2020 census, and will raise further awareness to the AAPI community to complete a census questionnaire.
According to the 2020 Census Barriers Attitudes and Motivators Study, Asian Americans have the lowest awareness about the 2020 census.
Gold House notes this stat suggests a growing number of Asians are disrupting industries rather than only working to be promoted.
Amid the coronavirus pandemic, Gold House will celebrate the A100 and positive achievements by AAPIs this month through several forums.
