Join us for Who Counts: The 2020 Census and Fair Voting Maps, at the Tippecanoe Branch of the Milwaukee Public Library from 10 a.m. to 12 noon. The general meeting will begin with social time from 10:00-10:15 a.m. Dr. Margo Anderson, census historian, will
share a brief history of the census and speak to some of the controversy over the 2020 census.
Learn about the debate around questions that might be added to the census, such as “Are you a citizen?” and a question that asks for further definition when choosing “white” as one’s race. Then University of Wisconsin-Madison law professor Robert Yablon will
update us on the Gill v. Whitford Supreme Court case. Oral
arguments in the case challenging gerrymandering in Wisconsin
are over and we’ll hear about the ramifications of the decision expected this year.
Questions and discussion will follow the presentation.
