RSVP for the Zoom webinar: democracy.psu.edu/census
It may not get as much attention as elections, but the once-a-decade head count of every person living in the U.S. comes with major consequences in who gets power and money over the next 10 years. NPR national correspondent Hansi Lo Wang will share insights from his three years of covering the 2020 census. He has reported on all of the controversies surrounding the count, including the Trump administration’s failed efforts to add the now-blocked citizenship question and last-minute changes to a schedule already delayed by the pandemic that put the count’s accuracy in serious jeopardy.
