The Decennial U.S Census, dating back to March 1, 1790, is a national effort required by the Constitution every 10 years, in which we count every person in the United States. It is our most comprehensive, coordinated effort as a country to collect information to help us understand who lives here and how community demographics are shifting.
Join representatives from the City of Portland to learn the historical significance of census taking and the impact of the data collected in the modern age. Who performs the census? How is the data collected and recorded? Who is eligible to be recorded? Why is partaking in the census important for today and for future historical records? How does the Census Bureau collect information about race and ethnicity? And what, if any, are the consequences for undocumented immigrants and BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, People of Color) participating in the U.S. Census?
This series deals with race in Oregon, both historically and up to the present time, to provide learning experiences that support the development of racial identity and sensitivity.
Each month, Kennedy School hosts a presentation on a different topic of ethnicity and racial elements in Oregon history, given by educators and/or experts in the topic at hand. The aim is to provide educational and learning experiences that support the development of intercultural sensitivity and racial identity.
This event is eligible for a History Pub Stamp
