As an organization committed to equity and justice, GCIR believes every person deserves to be counted. We applaud the Supreme Court’s decision today to temporarily block the addition of a citizenship question on the 2020 census. This ruling is a victory for democracy, yet the census still faces significant challenges.
Census Consultant and GCIR's 2020 Convening Emerging Leader scholarship recipient, Juan Galeano sheds light on the intersection between the Movement for Black Lives and the immigrant rights movement, and calls philanthropy to action to with the shortened deadline we have to complete the census.
As a Foundation, we believe in the values of equity and dignity. And we believe that all people should be treated with respect and have access to services and opportunities that allow them to thrive. Our work helps build strong, safe, and vibrant communities in California where all people are heard and can make their contribution to realizing the California dream.
