Speakers: Steven P Wallace and Homero del Pino
Every person counts, but will every person be counted by the U.S. Census this year? On April 1, the U.S. Census Bureau will conduct its decennial head count of the U.S. population. There is a concern that immigrant groups, particularly Latinos, may be fearful and less willing to participate due to the current administration’s anti-immigrant rhetoric and policies, including the proposed addition of a citizenship question, which was blocked by the Supreme Court. Community organizations, advocates, and other groups have been conducting outreach to immigrant populations to eliminate concerns and ensure an accurate count.
