NEA will create a sub-category of ethnicity under the race category on NEA360 and conference registration sites to help the association better understand the ethnic makeup of our membership and make sure that the needs of all members are met. They will also provide a report to state leadership detailing the ethnicity breakdowns of our membership. 

Rationale/Background

Currently, demographic data identifies people by single race and, therefore, ethnic identities are washed out. This makes identifying needs difficult and misplaced. Demographics should capture all singular API ethnicities so that accurate correlations can be made between people and needs.
