US Census , Should I Participate? Legal Questions & Answers

Thursday, July 30, 2020 - 12:50pm
This will be virtual, a Zoom meeting from 3:00 pm to 4:30.  The US Census staff-person, Adan Aispuro will make a 40 minute presentation on the benefits, values, protections and critical areas of the US Census.  Afterwards he will answer questions, then a panel of ACLU lawyers, Immigration Advocates, Immigration Lawyers, and community leaders (about 5) will answer questions from the public on protections, risks, benefits of participating in the census.  That question and answer period will last 20 minutes, then we will wrap up.  The whole event may take 1 hour to 1.15 minutes.

This event will be held in conjunction with the federal government’s in-person push for census taking in Aug 2020.   Our focus on this webinar is mainly to address concerns about answering or participating in the US Census.  Our focus will be on the legal rights in participating in the US Census.
