According to a 2012 Pew Research Center report, Asian Americans are the fastest growing ethnic group in the U.S. Comcast and the editorial team at the Examiner collaborated on 10 articles, focusing on the company’s community investment work from the perspective of the Asian-American community. Each article profiled local people impacted by and benefiting from Comcast’s support, while highlighting the company’s various community initiatives such as Internet Essentials, Digital Connectors, and our partnerships with local nonprofit groups.
