Speaking for Ourselves

The Speaking for Ourselves survey asked immigrants and refugees living in the Twin Cities about their perceptions and experiences related to education, transportation, housing, public health, safety, employment, finances, community and social engagement, and the immigrant experience. This study builds on a previous study conducted by Wilder Research in 2000.
