NEW YORK – At 10:30 AM on Monday, March 2, just nine days before the launch of the 2020 Census, NYC Census 2020 and the New York Immigration Coalition are hosting a South Asian and Indo-Caribbean Media Roundtable for media that represent and serve these communities in New York City.
The South Asian and Indo-Caribbean media roundtable will focus on the critical importance of the census in determining billions of dollars for education, healthcare, housing, transportation, and more, as well as ensuring that all New Yorkers from all backgrounds are fully represented in the nation's once-in-a-decade count of its populace.
Collectively, NYC's South Asian and Indo-Caribbean communities are among the largest, most diverse, and fastest-growing immigrant groups in New York City. Though South Asians and Indo-Caribbean groups have had a discernible presence in New York City since the 1960s, populations are continuing to rapidly grow and diversify, yielding new opportunities, challenges, and forms for community-based organizing.
