The importance of the census is far reaching and having accurate data is critical to protecting equity and civil rights. Only through accurate data can we accomplish equal representation for all Americans in our elections. In the March 6 episode of “The Progressive Happy Hour,” cohosts Drew Courtney and Cici Battle talk to Beth Lynk, the campaign director of Census Counts 2020 at the Leadership Conference on Civil and Human Rights, about the ways that the census data could disproportionately harm communities of color, low-income people, and LGBTQ+ people.
