The Center for Community and Ethnic Media organized a Newsmakers Q&A with Julie Menin, director of the Census for NYC and executive assistant corporation counsel for strategic advocacy, at the Craig Newmark Graduate School of Journalism on March 7. Host Errol Louis was joined by Kadia Goba (Bklyner) and Abu Taher (Bangla Patrika) on a panel that asked questions of Menin. A sizable number of journalists in the audience also asked questions related to the 2020 Census, the fear of undercounting and its possible impact, NYC’s strategy to increase the response rate to the census, etc.

Newsmakers Q&As are on-the-record conversations of public officials with journalists from the city’s very diverse community and ethnic media. The series, a signature program of the Center for Community and Ethnic Media, aims to increase coverage in this media of the City Council and government agencies and departments, as well as foster better communication and promote civic engagement.
