The following statement is from Derrick Johnson, President and CEO of NAACP on the Trump Administration’s decision not to include the controversial citizenship question to the 2020 Census:
“The Census is too important to be tainted or compromised. It determines our political representation, allocates federal resources, and helps to enforce civil rights laws. Now, it is time to focus on ensuring an accurate count for all communities. We must all stand up and be counted.”
