Virtual Parlor Chat – Why the Census Matters: Past & Present
June 17 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm
“Why the Census Matters: Past & Present” with Sarah Malaika, Partnership Specialist, New York Regional Office, Field Division, U.S. Census Bureau
Did you know that the first census occurred in 1790 during the inaugural term of George Washington? Every ten years, the federal government is required by the U.S. Constitution to hold a census to count all of the people living in the country, regardless of age or citizenship status. Join us for a virtual conversation with Sarah Malaika, Partnership Specialist, New York Regional Office, Field Division, U.S. Census Bureau, facilitated by Megan Byrnes, Programs Manager, at the Morris-Jumel Mansion. They will explore why participation in the 2020 Census matters today, and share how past censuses reveal clues about the lives of Morris-Jumel’s historic residents.
