“Hong Mei Pang is the Director of Advocacy at the Chinese for Affirmative Action in San Francisco and has been working directly with hard-to-count communities to ensure they have ‘equitable access and that they are able to understand the significance of the census as it relates to our fair share of resources to political representation.’

‘On the one hand, it’s really about these resources that make this census real on a day-to-day basis,” said Pang. “Especially for these hard-to-count communities who experience a lot of economic social and political disenfranchising and inequity.’ “
