The Census Bureau has proposed the addition of a Citizenship Status Question to the 2020 Census and indicated that data will be included in the transfer of census counts to states for the purposes of redistricting. During this webinar funders will learn how census data is used in congressional, state and local redistricting, and the impact of the U.S. Supreme Court case Evenwel v. Abbott; how efforts to draw out non-citizens or non-voters undermines one person, one vote, and the foundation of our democracy; and what needs to be done to ensure communities are represented.
