The Citizenship Question Presented: The Census Case Reaches the Supreme Court


Join the ACS for lunch, giveaways, and a discussion with experts about whether adding a citizenship question to the census violates the Administrative Procedures Act and/or the Constitution’s enumerations clause, and the trial court’s the authority to order the deposition of Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross in ascertaining the motive for including the question.

On the same day of this event, SCOTUS will hear oral argument in Department of Commerce v. New York, a case raising questions of administrative and constitutional law, as it potentially affects the accuracy of the 2020 Census and impact congressional representation and federal funding decisions.

Following a brief discussion of the ACS and E-Board elections, we will dive right into the “Census Question” during a webinar discussion with experts:

  • Jennifer Nou, Professor of Law, University of Chicago Law School
  • Daniel Tokaji, Associate Dean for Faculty and The Charles W. Ebersold and Florence Whitcomb Ebersold Professor of Constitutional Law, The Ohio State University Moritz College of Law
  • Kara Stein, Vice President of Policy and Program, ACS, moderator

Attendees interested in E-Board positions get a shot at more freebies. All prospects may enter a raffle for prizes consisting of; 4 Rutgers Law “vintage” T-shirts, an ACS duffle bag, ACS notebooks, and more. (Regardless of election results)
