Join New America CA and our cohost SPUR to discuss how we can ensure the integrity of the 2020 Census and fair treatment of our communities.
Every 10 years, the federal government attempts to count every person in the country as part of the U.S. Census, setting the foundation for political representation, social services, and research over the next decade. However, the expected inclusion of a citizenship status question and the move to a new online portal have raised concerns that the data collected in the 2020 census will be adversely skewed. This event will feature an engaging discussion of these issues followed by a reception to continue the conversation.
