    of Public Administration College of Urban Planning and Public Affairs Publications Public Engagement Conference Presentations MA Papers and Dissertations Faculty and Student Investigators Although social scientists have developed theories to explain racial differences in overall political participation less research has focused on racial differences in participation related to specific issues This study investigates the latter question by focusing on racial and ethnic differences in participation in three categories of issues 1 racial policies e g affirmative action immigration 2 race related policies e g funding for public housing welfare spending capital punishment gentrification education spending and 3 non race related policies We focus on issues of particular interest and concern within the City of Chicago Specifically we focus on comparing broader explanations of racial and ethic differences in participation e g differences in social economic status or political resources to explanations based on issue specific motivators e g issue importance certainty about one s attitude about the issue self interest in the issue or the extent to which groups with which one identifies are impacted and care about the issue This research also explores whether the motivators of issue specific participation vary across issues or racial and ethnic groups Chicago
