BONUS: Who Counts In 2020?

Up First

If you've sorted through your mail any time in the past few weeks, you probably noticed a very serious, very official letter from the U.S. government. It's a note asking you to fill out the 2020 Census. In fact, every household in the country is legally REQUIRED to fill out a census. But many households won't be doing that. One big reason? Distrust of the government. In this bonus episode of Code Switch, NPR's podcast about race and identity, hosts Shereen Marisol Meraji and Gene Demby explore how that distrust could skew the results of the census, and why that has HUGE repercussions — especially for people of color.
