The State of Chinese Americans: National Survey Launch

Chinese Americans have historically been under-served and under-represented in the U.S., and the recent pandemic has underscored the economic, social, and racial challenges that persist in Chinese American communities today.

Committee of 100 and Columbia University have jointly developed a first-of-its-kind nationwide survey to paint a comprehensive picture of the status and needs of Chinese Americans. This survey will gather data that will inform recommendations for policies and programs that aim to better serve Chinese American communities.

We hosted an informational webinar on November 3 to talk about the survey and how different organizations and communities can amplify the voices of Chinese Americans by getting involved.
