In this inaugural issue of the new Senior Editor, Majorie Kagawa-Singer, Nexus presents five articles that explore the diversity within Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders , including the disparities that continue to mark some of their experiences.  These articles address the diversity within the AAPI communities that are often dismissed due to the model minority myth.  They also help to develop new ways to intervene and prevent other pervasive problems from increasing in these communities.
