What you'll learn in this society class:

It’s almost time to “Get Out the Census” and the stakes could not be higher for New York City in terms of federal funding and electoral representation. What are government, community and civic leaders doing to ensure that every single resident of New York City is properly counted in April 2020? Despite the political controversies that have threatened the prospects of a full and accurate count of all New Yorkers to date, a massive mobilization effort is underway in all five boroughs on every conceivable platform to encourage people to fill out the 2020 Census.  Hear directly from those on the front lines about how the effort is proceeding and what setbacks remain.

  • Julie Menin, director of the Census for New York City
  • Melva M. Miller, executive vice president at the Association for a Better New York
  • Robert J. Rodriguez, New York State Assemblymember
  • Steven Romalewski, director of the CUNY Mapping Service
  • Juan Manuel Benítez (moderator), reporter for NY1
