Asian American and Pacific Islander Families and COVID-19


The Working Group will be part of the AAPI COVID-19 Project, a multi-method project that investigates how COVID-19 is shaping the lives of Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) communities in the US in six overlapping areas of study: 1) labor and economy; 2) caregiving; 3) health; 4) education; 5) community-based organizations; and 6) online media. This working group will study COVID-19’s social impacts on AAPI families, focusing on parenting behavior, children’s mental health, and family and domestic violence.
