Racial and Political Attitudes in California


Professors Cristina Mora and Tianna Paschel, CRSC affiliated faculty members, have received a second year of funding from the Russell Sage Foundation for their project, California Color Lines: Racial and Political Attitudes in the Age of Precariousness. This mixed method study was originally funded with an ISSI seed grant.  The project leverages the political and geographic diversity of California to analyze how Californians make sense of race and class in the present context of increasing economic precariousness and political polarization. Using survey data and interviews with Californians from different regions, Mora and Paschel also investigate how place shapes the economic and political experiences of belonging and exclusion.
