Maria Hinojosa, anchor and executive producer of Latino USA on NPR, leads a discussion on what is at stake for the 2020 Census. Not only will it determine national, state, and local representation—as well as spending for education, health, and infrastructure—but lack of funding and a newly planned question about citizenship may threaten its accuracy. Steven Choi of the New York Immigration Coalition and New York Counts 2020; Vanita Gupta of the Leadership Conference on Civil and Human Rights; John Mollenkopf, GC distinguished professor of political science and sociology; and Esmeralda Simmons of the Center for Law and Social Justice.
Presented on December 5, 2018, by GC Public Programs and the CUNY Mapping Service at the Center for Urban Research. This event is part of the series The Promise and Perils of Democracy.
