The 2020 Census is here! And it’s online! During this once-a-decade count of every person living in the United States, the most accurate count is achieved through self-response. Let us continue to ensure our neighbors, friends, and constituents know they can self-respond online, by phone, or by mail.
Additionally, Humanities New York is proud to announce our newest Community Conversation Toolkit, “Madam and the Census Man: Assessing Identity in Today’s America.” Built around a poem by the legendary Langston Hughes, this conversation prompts participants to think through what it means to be “counted” in our society and how the importance of participating in the census project sometimes sits in tension with a person’s personal sense of identity.
This Toolkit is available for any community group or organization to use without applying, we only ask you answer a few questions. Details: https://humanitiesny.org/our-work/programs/community-conversations/
Thanks to Dan Bouk, Associate Professor of History at Colgate University for advising on the Toolkit.
