INCITE Affiliates Receive SPLC Grant to Study Attitudes about Immigration


INCITE affiliates Maria Abascal, Jennifer Lee and Van Tran have received a grant from the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) to study whether and how exposure to information about contemporary immigrants and immigration affects Americans’ attitudes toward immigrants, Latinos, and Asians. The project uses an experimental design to test the effect of reading accurate pieces of information on anti-immigration attitudes, thus providing valuable data about the specific sources of such attitudes and potential strategies to change them.
