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. And it is an inventory of who lives in this country, vital information for building a just society. It is important and hopeful that these powerhouse nonprofits, are collaborating with other high-level stakeholders, including MALDEF, through a coalition led by the Leadership Conference of Human and Civil Rights. We talk about implementing a Census in a volatile political environment, the significance of the President's attempt to add a citizenship question to the form and the status of lawsuits regarding the Census. They are Census obsessed and we are the better for it.
