El Paso Holocaust Museum & Study Center together with the U.S. Census Bureau presents: “UnSilenced: Making the Invisible Visible” on Thursday – March 26, 2020. Part of EPHM’s Speak Out program series and U.S. Census Bureau’s community initiative, this panel discussion will examine the dark history of the Census- its abuse and misuse targeting Jewish populations abroad and Japanese-Americans domestically during the World War II era. The discussion will then explore the ramifications of this past today in regards to access, identity, equality, etc., as well as the significance and impact of the Census on our local community.
Panelists include Dr. Selfa Chew, Assistant Professor of History & Women’s Studies at UTEP; Dr. Sylvia Acosta, CEO of YWCA El Paso del Norte Region; and Jamie Flores, EPHM Executive Director. Discussion will be moderated by Paulina López of the U.S. Census Bureau.
There is no charge to attend this event, but RSVPs are encouraged. The evening will begin with a light reception at 5:30pm, followed by the panel discussion at 6:00pm. The evening will wrap up with a Q & A and information about the upcoming 2020 Census.
