OUR CHARGE

To conduct timely, policy-relevant, in-language research to assess the needs and impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic on Asian American, Native Hawaiian, and Pacific Islander communities in the United States. We strive to connect our work directly back to policymakers, community organizations, and other stakeholders to advocate for our communities.

We work in close collaboration with other research teams focused on Black/African American, Latinx, and indigenous communities, as well seniors of color, as part of the Alliance of National Psychological Associations for Racial and Ethnic Equity. Our collaborative compares and contrasts the experiences of these priority populations to collectively advocate for communities of color.
