Webinar: The Race Question

This webinar from AAJC discusses (1) failed efforts to combine race and Hispanic origin questions and add a Middle Eastern, North African (MENA) category, (2) dynamics around check boxes, write-in responses, and (3) the ability to indicate more than one race. The webinar will feature guest speaker Dan Ichinose.

Mr. Ichinose has over 20 years of experience leading research that uses census, voter, and other data to address problems facing Asian American and NHPI communities. He also oversees Advancing Justice – Los Angeles’ Census Information Center (CIC), recognized by the U.S. Census Bureau as an official source of census data since 2006, and currently serves as Vice Chair of the national network’s Steering Committee.
