CAAL-MN Discusses Redefining Wealth in Recently Released Report

By admin

The Coalition of Asian-American Leaders-Minnesota (CAAL-MN) recently released a report, “Redefining Wealth Through Communal and Cultural Assets,” which aims to analyze definitions and present nuanced understandings of wealth across various Asian ethnic groups in Minnesota.

Michelle Chang (she/her/they/them), Lead Organizer for CAAL-MN, sat down with the Quilt editorial team to discuss the report. “I think it’s long overdue for this to be released, and to be frank, I know that CAAL wanted to create this report because we didn’t see it anywhere else for Asian Minnesotans,” said Chang.

The report seeks to build a deeper understanding of what wealth means to Asian Minnesotans and to understand more deeply the ways in which different Asian communities define wealth, given cultural factors, community factors, and definitions of economic well-being. 

11 recommendations are called for in the report, overall. More details on each recommendation can be read about in the report and the executive summary, linked below.

The Report and Executive Summary can be read at CAAL-MN’s website.
