Local Organization Works to Get Everyone Counted On The 2020 Census (Aired: July 29, 2020)

The State of California is suing the Trump administration over an order that aims to block undocumented immigrants from being counted in the census. The effort is likely to fail. But some fear the attempt alone may discourage immigrants from being counted.  The Community Action Partnership of Sonoma County is working to ensure everyone fills out the census regardless of immigration status. KRCB’s Adia White spoke with Director of Community Engagement, Vince Harper, about the effort. 

Community Action Partnership is hosting a census action week from August 1st to August 8th. Events kick off this Saturday with a celebratory caravan, starting at the Hyatt Regency and winding through North West Santa Rosa. Learn more at norcalpublicmedia.org
