An Interrupted Complete Count


An Interrupted Complete Count
Jordan Hill
The local Lehigh Valley initiative to get a full complete count for the 2020 Census has faced many challenges, beginning with pre-existing distrust in government and lack of access to community, followed by a fear mongering debate over the Trump Administration's citizenship question, and now the COVID-19 global pandemic. As each day passes, the attempt to get a holistic count of the residents of the Lehigh Valley has gotten increasingly more difficult as well as increasingly vital as the unprecedented national health crisis starkly highlights the rampant inequality omnipresent in this nation, as well as the devastatingly dangerous weaknesses of the national leadership.
This video essay uses archival footage from both Lehigh Valley based and national news organizations to highlight the struggles dangerously impacting the national 2020 Census.
