The Center for Urban Research at City University of New York is working with a coalition of civil rights groups, philanthropic foundations, and others to map “hard to count” communities in advance of the 2020 Census. The maps will help organizations to highlight the importance of having Congress fully fund the Census Bureau leading up to the 2020 Census, and to help “Get out the Count” campaigns prior to Census Day in April 2020.
