In our own research, we found that AAPIs still struggle to find a sense of safety and belonging in this country.
TAAF’s groundbreaking 2023 STAATUS Index Survey revealed how AAPIs feel about their personal safety and sense of belonging — and how they're perceived by others. 2023 marked the third year of much-needed STAATUS research, where we looked at cross-racial solidarity and U.S-China relationships.
Of all racial groups surveyed, AAPIs, especially young women, are the least likely to feel like they’re completely accepted in the U.S. This is primarily because of racial discrimination and the lack of leadership representation in the workplace.
