Michigan Asian American Pacific Islander Civic Engagement Survey

The Michigan Asian American Pacific Islander Civic Engagement Survey will map voter participation in local and federal elections, providing a clear understanding of communities’ needs, priorities and inclusion in the political process so that AAPIs can build organizing power and ensure our voices will continue to be heard. The short survey can be completed online at this link and is offered in English, Mandarin and Bangla language versions.

MAAP announces findings from the Michigan Asian American Pacific Islander Civic Engagement Survey. This in-depth study of the Michigan AAPI community is the first of its kind, and provides a comprehensive overview of perspectives on voting, the role of government, the COVID-19 response, the economy, and other issues that are of priority to the community.

"The glimmer of hope we received is that our Asian community in Michigan firmly believes in its political power. Most respondents said they felt powerful enough to move the election, and 41 percent believed voting could create real change."
