Counting Asian American, Native Hawaiian, and Pacific Islander communities fully and accurately is critical to a successful census. Lawyers, bar associations, and other groups of legal advocates are critical partners in this work. You can help make sure that your community and clients are counted in the 2020 Census.
Learn how you can be a resource for the community during Census 2020 during this joint webinar presented by Asian Americans Advancing Justice (Advancing Justice), the National Asian Pacific American Bar Association (NAPABA), and the South Asian Bar Association of North America (SABA-North America).

According to the United States Constitution, the federal government is legally required to count all living persons in the country. However, the Asian American, Native Hawaiian, and Pacific Islander (AANHPI) community has historically been undercounted. This results in a lack of resources and services for the community. Even though the citizenship question will not be on the Census, immigrant and AANHPI communities still have questions and concerns about filling out the form.
