Topic: Population and demographics (Ethnic and racial groups)

Pacific Islanders represent less than one percent of Oakland's population and as a result may be overlooked or categorized with other disparate communities. Although small in numbers, this community has its unique issues and concerns including the distinctly different groups that comprise the Pacific Islander community itself. At the same time it shares issues in common with other immigrant communities that should not be overlooked as Pacific Islanders develop a Pacific Islander American identity.
