We are inviting you to help us with a research study and talk about your civic and political engagement. As a thank you, we will send along a $10 gift card.
We are seeking Latinx youth to volunteer to be interviewed virtually (i.e., Skype, Zoom, Google Hangouts). The interviews will be audio-taped. If you decide to participate, we will ask you questions about your thoughts related to the 2020 election in the U.S., immigrants and immigration, and the ways in which you are civically and politically engaged. We will NOT ask you about your political affiliation, who you plan to vote for, or anything related to anyone’s citizenship status. The interview will take no more than 90 minutes.
Any risk to you should be minimal for this study and you should not feel pressured to participate. Even if you agree to participate now, you can stop and any time, or decide not to answer any particular questions you don’t want to answer. No one outside the research team will know about your participation unless you decide to tell someone about it.
Your identity will be protected to the extent allowed by law. Your name will not be recorded during any interview unless you choose to state your name during the interview. You will not be personally identified in any reports or publications that may result from this study. Only the research team and the Institutional Review Board at the University of Texas at Austin and Purdue University will have access to the information.
If you are interested in participating or learning more about this study, please contact Rebecca Callahan (UT Austin) at firstname.lastname@example.org or Kathryn Obenchain (Purdue University) Kobench@purdue.edu .
