2020 U.S. Census
With the Trump administration's aggressive implementation of immigration policies, a chance exists that minority communities will fear participating in the pivotal 2020 census. The accuracy of this census is vital to creating a true snapshot of the American population, and will be instrumental in future redistricting efforts. It's imperative that the Hispanic community is accurately represented in this important demographical accounting.
