AAPI communities are constantly undercounted in the census, which provides the data utilized for critical decisions such as redistricting, House representation, and allocation of federal dollars. This workshop will introduce and emphasize the unique challenges of the 2020 census, outline the need for an accurate count of the AAPI community, and provide a general overview of how census data is collected and what the data is used for. Also in 2020, our vote in the Presidential Primary and General Elections are crucial to being seen and heard moving forward. Come learn what is at stake in 2020 and how you can be part of the movement to ensure that AAPIs are counted.
Additionally, come learn about our Census video project! We are planning to shoot on Thursday, July 25. We are looking to film testimonials from AAPI interns, both in English and in-language, speaking about how and why the census impacts our lives.
