Terry Ao Minnis and Angela Manso joined me for a conversation about Census 2020 at Power Station. As you will hear, the stakes for the Census could not be higher. The Census determines the apportionment of seats in the House of Representatives and the allocation of federal dollars to states. So it is particularly important that their powerhouse nonprofit organizations, Asian Americans Advancing Justice, and NALEO Education Fund, are engaging on this issue with other high-level stakeholders, including MALDEF, through a coalition led by the Leadership Conference of Human and Civil Rights. We talk about the implications for adding a question (untested) to the Census regarding citizenship, related lawsuits in Federal courts and the galvanizing of advocacy in local communities.
