We just won a huge ruling in federal court—you need to know about this:
This administration’s plans for the 2020 census would drastically undercount African Americans and other people of color across the country. And an undercount like that would lead to unequal political representation and reduced federal funding for communities of color.
So the NAACP and our allies are challenging the administration’s census plans in federal court. And just yesterday, a District Court judge rejected the government’s motion to dismiss our lawsuit, writing “[T]he census must be conducted in a way that will not thwart the goal of equal representation.”

That means our lawsuit moves ahead. And we’ll keep fighting with everything we’ve got.
