In co-sponsorship with many organizations including Philanthropy Northwest, the Funders' Committee for Civic Participation (FCCP) is hosting a webinar centered on making public comments about citizenship question planned for the 2020 census. On June 8, the Commerce Department (which oversees the Census Bureau) invited the public to comment on the paperwork associated with the 2020 census. The public has 60 days – until August 7 – to submit comments. This is one of the few opportunities for philanthropy to make its case that the citizenship question should be removed from the census questionnaire. Regardless of whether public comments will move the Trump administration to reverse its decision, this establishes an important record for the public, Congress and the courts to consider.
