FREE MOCA event! Advance registration is required.
The 2020 Census is coming! Join MOCA and a panel of census experts and community organizers to learn more about the census and how it affects Chinese diasporic communities across the five boroughs. What impact does the Census have on our daily lives? Who does it benefit, and how? What factors could lead to an undercount? How are community organizations fighting to make sure that we all get counted? We’ll be discussing these questions and more. Panelists include: Wennie Chin, Senior Management of Civic Engagement, New York Immigration Coalition; Carlyn Cowen, Chief Policy and Public Affairs Officer, Chinese-American Planning Council; Howard Shih, Research and Policy Director, Asian American Federation; Stephanie Zank, MOCA 2020 Census Manager, Museum of Chinese in America; and Karen Zhou, Executive Director, Homecrest Community Services. The program is moderated by Elizabeth R. OuYang, MOCA 2020 Census Consultant.
