For more than a year, we have been speaking with communities, partners and allies across the state about Census 2020. In no uncertain terms, they have shared their fears of participation in a census with a citizenship question, the inclusion of which was intended to terrorize, undercount, underrepresent and underfund Latinx and other immigrant communities and people of color.
We are thrilled with today’s announcement that the 2020 census will be printed without the citizenship question, because it will ensure all Californians feel safer as they participate in this important civic ritual of affirmation.
