California lost an estimated $2 billion in federal funding over the last decade due to the undercount of Asians and Pacific Islanders during the 2000 Census, according to the Asian Law Caucus. To prevent that from happening again, advocates who serve the Southeast Asian community in Northern California gathered in Oakland to make sure their communities are counted in the 2010 Census.
