Caitlin Briggs is a psychology PhD student at Michigan State University in the United States. She am conducting research on Asian individuals’ perceptions of, and experiences with, bias and discrimination in the U.S. in connection with the COVID-19 pandemic. A charitable donation of $1.00 USD will be made to the Asian Pacific American Labor Alliance’s COVID-19 Community Fund for each person who responds to the survey. You can learn more about the APALA Community Fund here: https://www.apalanet.org/communityfund.html.
To be eligible to take this anonymous survey individuals must be 18 years or older, identify as Asian, and currently reside in the U.S. (no need to be a citizen).
You’ve probably seen more than one of these requests. But…As you likely know, psychological research on Asian samples in the U.S. is quite rare. By participating in this research, and other similar studies, you will be advancing our knowledge of Asian individuals in the U.S.
For more on why bias research with Asian American samples is needed, see this recent article by the American Psychological Association: https://www.apa.org/monitor/2019/12/countering-stereotypes.html
The research study will run until we have collected enough responses.
