Dig into Census 2020 with Illinois Program for Research in the Humanities

The U.S. Census process is underway, and Illinois Program for Research in the Humanities (IPRH) is offering an evening of discussions about the implications on March 2nd.

At 4 p.m. there will be a panel: Race, Place and the Politics of Census 2020 in room 210 of Levis Faculty Center. From the event description:

“This event includes scholars who are studying this particular political moment and how different racial groups understand the government generally and the census more specifically, with broad implications for how we comprehend government trust and political divides as they impact racial groups across urban and rural communities.”

At 6:30 p.m. in the third floor lecture hall at Levis is a forum: Champaign-Urbana Local Concerns for Census 2020. Hear from Gabriel Lewis (Champaign County Regional Planning Commission) and Gloria Yen (Director of the New American Welcome Center, University YMCA)  about how the 2020 census could impact our local Champaign-Urbana community. 

Both events are free and open to the public.
