Forum – “Race, Place, and the Politics of the 2020 Census”

Monday, Mar. 2, 2020, 4:00 PM, Levis Faculty Center, Rm. 210

In light of the Trump administration’s proposed citizenship question, the 2020 census promises to be a politicized undertaking in an already highly politicized environment. This forum brings together scholars of race and ethnicity, who are attuned to this particular political moment. Speakers include Julie A. Dowling (Lation/a Stuides, UIUC), G. Cristina Mora (Sociology, University of California Berkeley), Michael Rodríguez-Muñiz (Sociology and Latino/a Studies, Northwestern University), Anita Banerji (Director of the Democracy Initiative), and Griselda Vega Samuel (Mexican American Legal Defense and Educational Fund).
