CAWA is pleased to announce the nationwide survey, “The State of Chinese Americans”is now open for all Chinese Americans across the nation to participate.  This summer, CAWA was one of the four community organizations across the country selected to partner with the survey sponsors Columbia University and Committee of 100.  

CAWA hosted two focus groups in English and Mandarin for a pilot test-run of the survey to provide Columbia University and Committee of 100 researchers input and feedback on how it could be improved before nationwide distribution.

We encourages you to participate in this survey here: 

The national survey gives us a voice on key issues facing our community to be heard by policymakers, the press and the public.  Please forward this important survey to your friends in the Chinese American community.
