On March 26, around 9 p.m., Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross announced his decision to add a citizenship question to the 2020 decennial census, in response to a request from the Department of Justice. FPN members are invited to join the Funders Census Initiative this Thursday for an emergency web briefing for funders to understand what happened, the implications of adding the question and to begin a discussion about how to respond to the new question.
