A Forum with Elected Officials and Civil Rights Organizations 2020 Census: Tech Revolution or Risk? Register to Attend On June 18th join us for a public forum with Congressman Adriano Espaillat, Congresswoman Carolyn Maloney, Manhattan Borough President Gale Brewer and other community, tech, and civil rights leaders to discuss the unique ways the upcoming 2020 census may impact marginalized communities. Although years away, the 2020 Census is already prompting fraught conversations around the country as the prospect of an inaccurate count exacerbates existing challenges for communities of color, immigrants, and others whose numbers have long been undercounted. The 2020 Census creates two new concrete obstacles: 1. It will be digitally based, raising concerns regarding missing minority populations with disproportional access to digital connectivity, and raising the specter of data leakage for communities already feeling under threat. 2. It will for the first time contain a question about citizenship, suppressing response rates in immigrant households. Following the 2010 census, 10 states lost congressional seats and New York stands to lose a Congressional seat as well as vital federal funding if significant sections of its population are undercounted again. To address the potential shift in the balance of power and discuss action steps for ensuring a fair count, New America NYC and NYU's McSilver Institute for Poverty Policy and Research have teamed up to produce an inaugural conversation on June 18th to highlight the necessity of early and sustained census preparation in keeping our democratic institutions equitably funded and accessible.

TrueValueMetrics (TVM) is an Open Source / Open Knowledge initiative. It has been funded by family and friends plus donations from well wishers who understand the importance of accountability and getting the management metrics right. TVM is a 'big idea' that has the potential to be a game changer leveling the playing field so the wealth and power is shared on a more reasonable basis between people who work for a living and those that own the economy and the levers of power. In order to be effective, it cannot be funded in the conventional way with a for profit business plan, but absolutely must remain an open access initiative.
