NAACP suing over census plans

Planetizen - "The NAACP is suing the Trump administration over what it sees as inadequate preparation for the 2020 Census, a problem the civil-rights group claims is likely to lead to severe undercounting of minorities," reports Heather Long. "In June, the NAACP filed a Freedom of Information Act request to obtain documents on the Census 2020 outreach, testing and hiring plans to ensure 'hard-to-count' populations fill in their forms," explains Long of the events that led up to the lawsuit. The Commerce Department's response, according to the NAACP, was "wholly inadequate."
