Join us for the latest event in the “Detroit Counts” virtual series.

These free public events explore how the U.S. census offers a picture of the past and shapes the community’s future.

Dr. Hayg Oshagan, associate professor for Wayne State’s College of Fine, Performing and Communication Arts, will talk about hard-to-count communities and how the census is critically important to them, both in terms of resources (such as health and education) as well as with political representation and redistricting. Learn about who the hard-to-count are and why some people do or do not respond to the census.

Oshagan is on the census committees in Detroit, the Detroit City Council, Wayne County, and the Michigan Nonprofit Association. He has given over 50 talks and interviews about the Census this year alone, and he does media outreach for ethnic and cultural groups across the state.
