The Fight for Representation: The State of Chinese Americans Survey
FREE AND OPEN TO THE PUBLIC | ONLINE (VIA ZOOM) | REGISTRATION REQUIRED
Chinese Americans are historically underrepresented in politics and policy, and underserved in healthcare, education, and social services. How do you work to solve these problems? The first step is getting clear and concise data on Chinese Americans, one of the fastest growing populations in the U.S.
Chinese Americans have diverse backgrounds and diverse needs – from culture, family, healthcare, education, employment, finances and political engagement. Data disaggregation is the key to addressing the issues, concerns and challenges of Chinese Americans.
In the largest survey of its kind ever conducted, nearly 6,500 Chinese Americans from 46 states answered 77 key questions about the Chinese American experience in research conducted jointly by Columbia University and Committee of 100.
This disaggregated data specifically on Chinese Americans will inform policymakers and the public of the diverse set of opinions, perceptions, and needs of Chinese Americans across the country and will help develop timely and responsive policies, programs, and services to address those needs.
Join experts from Columbia University, Committee of 100, and the worlds of policy, politics and research for the unveiling of this data at a virtual town hall on April 27 at 7:00pm ET.
This event features a presentation on the Key Findings from the Research by Dr. Qin Gao, Professor of Social Policy and Social Work. Followed by a panel with Wayne Ho, President & Chief Executive Officer, Chinese-American Planning Council, Dr. Neil G. Ruiz, Head of New Research Initiatives, Pew Research Center, and Robert L. Santos, Director, U.S. Census Bureau, moderated by Gordon H. Chang, Olive H. Palmer Professor in Humanities; Professor of History, History Department; Stanford University.
