Description

Census 2020: A Question of Citizenship?

Larry Terry, Director, Weldon Cooper Center for Public Service; Lecturer of Public Policy, Frank Batten School of Leadership and Public Policy

Next year’s census has already proven to be one of the most anticipated and controversial constitutionally-grounded headcounts in U.S. history. While the debate around the necessity or legality of the “citizenship” question has fueled much of the discussion in political and social circles alike, what is often overlooked or misunderstood about the census is its relationship to American citizenship – or our responsibilities in participatory government and civic engagement beyond voting. This conversation will engage participants and explore notions of citizenship historically as well as propose a call to action for individuals across the United States of America to be better citizens through service, collective action, and a belief in the power of democratic community. Prior to this event, one question to consider is: What does citizenship mean to you?
