The 2020 Census is coming, and the results will determine how political and economic resources are distributed on a local, state-wide and federal level for the next decade. But in a climate of divisiveness and fear, what does it mean to stand up and be counted?
Join The Public Theater’s Public Forum as we travel throughout all five boroughs of New York City hosting gatherings and sparking conversation in YOUR community! Civic Salon: TO BE COUNTED will feature free food, music, poetry, and conversation. Members of the NYC 2020 Census Bureau will be present to answer your questions. Hear from your neighbors as they share their visions for the future, and learn how 10 simple questions in 10 minutes could impact the next 10 years in your community.
Featuring music from iconoclast singer-songwriter Martha Redbone; poetry from Nsangou Njikam; and stories from community members like YOU!
