For the purposes of this project, we decided to forego the AAPI label and instead just use Asian American. As an exclusively Asian-American team of creators, we do not feel that we have the proper resources or knowledge to fully represent and portray Pacific Islander experiences, and we would not want to include PIs in a topical and tokenizing manner. We consulted with some PI folks in our network, and they agreed that using the label “Asian American” exclusively would be more accurate for our project, and an act of allyship to PI communities through foregoing the harmful lumping that comes with the AAPI identifier. We hope to see future efforts specifically highlighting Pacific Islanders in the Jewish community, and we are eager to uplift the work of folks in that identity intersection.
