Raising the Bar: The United States Census

August 18, 2019

The US census collects data that will be used to determine the number of seats each state has in the U.S. House of Representatives and is also used to distribute billions in federal funds to local communities. In many communities of color there have been issues with counting the population which contributes to the underfunding of the areas. What can be done to ensure the census is used to help these communities?

Raising the Bar host Jason Clark, President of the Metropolitan Black Bar Associationis joined by Khylad D. Craine, Former Chair at the Young Lawyers Division, and Tanya Clay House, Civil Rights Law Chair at the National Bar Association to discuss the U.S. Census.
