In the absence of these things it is shameful, racist and vindictive.

February 9, 2017 at 11:46 am The United States still is the most generous nation on earth. A temporary halt in immigration from countries that have lost control of their populations is not unreasonable. The Church can work to help establish safe-zones in the countries where displaced peoples are, but bringing them to America may not be in their best interest. A pause is in order. Thanks be to God. February 14, 2017 at 9:29 am This website has become unreadable as it is merely a gathering place for far left liberal talking points. I am disgusted that this “Episcopal” website is espousing such naive and misguided viewpoints in the name of the Church. Does every story have to be liberal drivel? How about those of us who support the President… (gasp!)… and his authority to make our citizenry safer? After you stop hyperventilating from that statement consider this: Trump won the election…and you are alienating over half the population with this “news”. February 10, 2017 at 8:04 am Wow! I’m speechless. Are you actually an ordained minister? I feel sorry for your congregation that is if you still have one. You are the reason the Episcopal church is dwindling into oblivion! New Berrigan Book With Episcopal Roots Cascade Books Dr. William A. Flint, MDiv, PhD says: The Episcopal Church first formally became involved in refugee resettlement work in the 1930s, resettling people fleeing Nazi Europe. The Presiding Bishop’s Fund for World Relief, the predecessor of Episcopal Relief & Development, grew out of this movement.

Photo: Episcopal Migration Ministries[Episcopal News Service – Linthicum Heights, Maryland] The Episcopal Church’s Executive Council Feb. 8 pledged the Church’s solidarity with refugees in the face of President Donald Trump’s executive order suspending their entry into the United States.A federal judge on Feb. 6 temporarily blocked Trump’s action, leaving the State Department’s refugee admissions program in limbo.Council’s approach was two-pronged: financial and legal. It granted $500,000 to Episcopal Migration Ministries to bridge it financially during Trump’s suspension of refugee resettlement and as that work presumably resumes, albeit on a smaller scale. It also requested that the presiding bishop investigate whether it is “appropriate and advisable” to defend in court EMM’s refugee resettlement ministry and the church’s stance of religious tests.Presiding Bishop Michael Curry, who said earlier in the day that Episcopalians must root their public advocacy work in the values of Jesus, told a post-meeting press conference that council’s EMM actions were a perfect example of that rootedness. Christians believe the admonition found in the Letter to the Hebrews that in welcoming strangers, one might be welcoming angels without knowing it.“We have to stand there and stay in that work,” he said. “The critical part of it is not to just talk the talk; it’s walking the talk.”Curry said that council “had the courage” to continue to support its nearly 80-year-old ministry to refugees in a new way even though it will cost much more money than expected. When the Episcopal Church advocates for refugees with policymakers, he said, “We can say we’re not asking you to do something we’re not doing ourselves.”Trump’s executive order, still being litigated, suspends all refugee resettlement for at least 120 days. When the program restarts, it imposes further restrictions on potential refugees from seven Muslim-majority countries. Furthermore, after that resumption, Trump said only 50,000 refugees can enter the United States instead of the anticipated 110,000 this fiscal year.EMM needs the financial support from the church-wide budget because the majority of its income comes from contracts with the federal government to cover the costs of resettling refugees approved for entry to the United States. The federal contract directly ties that money to refugees’ arrival. Thus, if refugees cannot enter the U.S., EMM does not receive money.In the 2016 fiscal year, Oct. 1, 2015 to Sept. 30, 2016, EMM resettled 5,762 refugees to the United States from 35 countries, including the Democratic Republic of Congo, Burma, Afghanistan and Syria. Already this fiscal year, EMM welcomed 2,400 refugees and anticipated resettling 6,175 people until Trump signed his order Jan. 27. On Jan. 26, the Rev. E. Mark Stevenson, EMM director, said, EMM welcomed 42 refugees and has resettled nearly 70 while the order has been contested in court.Structurally and fiscally, EMM is a unique ministry of the Episcopal Church. While it is not separately incorporated, as is Episcopal Relief & Development, it receives very little money from the church-wide budget.EMM anticipated $14.2 million from the U.S. State Department and $6.2 million from the federal Department of Health and Human Services. The State Department money covers the arrival and placement phase for each refugee’s first 90 days, in the country. The HHS money funds a matching grant to provide 180 days of services to certain, but not all, refugees. Those services included extended English as a Second Language classes, job training and cultural orientation.Some funding for EMM’s national office is guaranteed through March 31, Stevenson said, but the pre-refugee funding halts during the suspension.Stevenson said 99.5 percent of the contract money directly goes to resettling refugees. EMM retains about $2 million for administrative costs, including all staff salaries. Any unused money goes back to the government.“This is not a money-making venture,” Stevenson told Episcopal News Service.The concern extends beyond the Church Center-based work of EMM. It collaborates with its 31-member local affiliate network in 23 states, along with 27 dioceses plus faith communities and volunteers to resettle refugees. Those organizations receive money via EMM from the federal contract and will have no income when no refugees enter the country. Affiliates will have to rely on cash reserves, fundraising and whatever support EMM can give them to pay their employees, pay leases and cover other operating expenses.Stevenson told the council that EMM must be able to sustain its ministry during the suspension and restart phase of the government’s resettlement program. To do that, the Church needs to support financially the national EMM office and find ways to help sustain their affiliates during the suspension so that they are ready to resume resettling refugees in what he predicted would be a slow restart.Newly arrived refugees needs include housing, health care and education about life in the United States. If the local affiliates are not prepared to meet those needs, refugees will enter the country but they will be resettled into poverty and vulnerability, albeit different from the ones they have escaped, he said.“This is gospel work that we are about,” Stevenson said, citing both the Old and New Testaments’ insistence to “treat the alien as our neighbor.”In addition to the bridge funding of as much as $500,000 this year, council left open the door to giving EMM additional money in 2018, if needed. The ministry must provide a “definitive sustainability plan” for using the money.In the legal context, council requested that Curry investigate whether it is “advisable and appropriate to file, or intervene in, litigation as appropriate in order to defend the refugee resettlement ministry of EMM,” according to the resolution it passed.Moreover, the presiding bishop was asked to do the same exploration of efforts “to contest the imposition of any religious test upon any refugee, asylum seeker, or other person seeking residence, asylum or lawful entry into the United States.” The resolution says “such tests are contrary to our faith and contrary to a good faith construction of the U.S. Constitution and governing federal law.”Council told the presiding bishop to consult with the president of the House of Deputies, the church’s chief legal officer, council’s Executive Committee, EMM’s director and the Office of Government Relations as he considers any such actions. It also asked the chief legal officer to report confidentially to its next regular meeting, on the progression of that investigation, and any actual litigation might result. The members left the door open to convening electronically if needed.(Council’s Governance and Administration for Ministry committee finished crafting the job description for the chief legal officer position during the meeting and the application process is now open. The last meeting of General Convention created the position, making it a canonically required job.)The Rev. E. Mark Stevenson, Episcopal Migration Ministries director, holds a sign listing the biblical imperatives for welcoming the stranger. Photo: Episcopal Migration Ministries via FacebookIn one of many closed-door committee and plenary sessions during the meeting, council members met privately to ask questions of the members of council’s Governance and Administration for Ministry’s committee, which proposed the resolution. After that discussion, and following substantial debate and amendments, council passed the resolution 14-9.Council also said it wanted to convey to the Diocese of Olympia and Bishop Greg Rickel “its strong support” for their refugee ministry. The diocese, which has a resettlement agency, recently joined the American Civil Liberties Union in opposing Trump’s order.‘Extreme vetting’ already happensEMM is one of nine U.S. resettlement agencies that do this work under government contract. By federal law, refugees may only enter the U.S. under the auspices of one of those agencies.The term “refugee” has a specific legal meaning. The United Nation High Commissioner for Refugees designates a person as a “refugee” if they are fleeing persecution, war or violence. Those people apply for that designation and are regarded as distinct from immigrants. They earn refugee designation after UNHCR vets their application.The U.N. agency then refers the refugee to a specific country. If that country is the United States, a subsequent vetting process begin. That second process is “very rigorous, one might even say extreme,” Stevenson told ENS. Syrian refugees received an added layer of scrutiny, he said.The U.S. State Department then works with the nine agencies to decide which one of them will resettle that person. It takes a few months for the paperwork to be complete so that the person can enter the country.The entire vetting process, Stevenson said, takes between 18 and 24 months.The Feb. 5-8 meeting took place at the Maritime Institute Conference Center.Additional ENS coverage of the meeting is here. Some council members tweeted from the meeting using #ExCoun.The Executive Council carries out the programs and policies adopted by the General Convention, according to Canon I.4 (1). The council comprises 38 members – 20 of whom (four bishops, four priests or deacons, and 12 lay people) are elected by General Convention and 18 (one clergy and one lay) by the nine provincial synods for six-year terms – plus the presiding bishop and the president of the House of Deputies. In addition, the vice president of the House of Deputies, secretary, chief operating officer, treasurer and chief financial officer have seat and voice but no vote.– The Rev.

Please don’t tell me not all Muslims, because that is exactly my point.

No question we need to address intervention with Muslim youth who feel disenfranchised and isolated – they are most at risk of radicalization. Making Muslims enemies, burning their houses of worship, death threats and harassment are sure fire ways to turn their youth into radical anti-American terrorists who will act out in the name of their religion.We have angry white men who act violently in the name of a twisted version of Christianity too. Let’s not forget radicalization knows no color and is not limited to any one religion. Episcopal Charities of the Diocese of New York Hires Reverend Kevin W.

More than two dozen people have eagerly come forth to form our “circle of care” and the vestry has made a five-year commitment to providing a support network for this family. Such a long range view is the best assurance that refugees struggling to make adjustments to our society will not become disaffected and vulnerable to pathological ideologies.

In 1976 architects Jean and Veronique Boland-Springal designed and built a row house for themselves in the sleeping quarters in Brussels. Even though owners changed several times and the building went through several maintenances, main spaces and architecture stayed the same. The dwelling is organized into 6 levels, which creates compelling spaces, engaging perspectives and connects street and inner-courtyard on different levels. Building framework is from monolithic concrete columns and slabs and is compressed in a 5m gap between masonry brick walls. Bay windows with an open concrete structure framework are duplicated in the interior spaces. Meanwhile, the captured representation was oppressing – everything was painted in various colors and enclosed with diverse materials, which were physically and morally worn out.Save this picture!© Andrius StepankevičiusIn the interior project, we attempted to emphasize main values of the building – existing spaces, concrete structure and warm of the masonry bricks. Firstly, the whole area was cleared up of unnecessary partitions, doors, massive furnace, even the courtyard was purged off from old brushwood. Since deep spaces lack natural light, we solved it with a help of white surfaces, transparent partitions and railings. Consequently, variant level space between living and dining rooms becomes more solid and continuous. Guest toilet gets the natural light through the transparent glass block partition, while master cloakroom – from an opening in the wall. Masonry bricks, which are inherent for Brussels, were polished and displayed at one side of the dwelling. Wall’s rough texture and warm color unexpectedly mediates and moderately highlights main spaces. Concrete structures are exposed on the white surfaces. Beams of various forms, columns, bay windows are sanded from paint and become an active participant in the interior space. Furthermore, all furniture, doors and partitions are tied to these elements. Reinforced concrete, together with masonry bricks becomes a peculiar heritage (even from 70’s) on the background of new surfaces materials, for this reason, we tried to avoid the abundance of them. Basically, these are lush playful-patterned parquet, subtle grey tiles in the basement, utility rooms and white painted surfaces. The airy mood is livened up by camouflage green color, which appears on different furniture and surfaces, as well as new black/white heaters harmonized to dwelling’s epoch times.Save this picture!SectionSave this picture!Floor PlansFor now, the building continues to exist side-by-side with the new growing family, so eventually the interior will be filled in with designed inside/ outside furniture, additional lightning and courtyard will lush with new greenery.Save this picture!© Andrius StepankevičiusProject gallerySee allShow lessReinvent or Die: The Transformation of Malls Under The New Economic/Urban ParadigmArticlesKata Farm in Varnhem / AIX Arkitekter ABSelected Projects Share Photographscenter_img Photographs:  Andrius Stepankevičius Manufacturers Brands with products used in this architecture project Brickwall / YCL studioSave this projectSaveBrickwall / YCL studio ArchDaily Save this picture!© Andrius Stepankevičius+ 45 Share “COPY” CopyHouses•Woluwe-Saint-Pierre, Belgium ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/886264/brickwall-ycl-studio Clipboard Area:  204 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project Architects: YCL studio Area Area of this architecture projectlast_img read more

Pete Seeger: Folk musician, anti-capitalist fighter

first_imgPete SeegerWorld-renowned folk musician and songwriter, Peter “Pete” Seeger, was born in 1919. He came from a wealthy New England family, and both his parents were classical musicians. In the summer of 1936, when Seeger was 17 years old, he went to “Mountain Dance and Folk Festival” in Asheville, N.C. At the festival, Seeger had what he called a “conversion experience.”He heard the music of the working class, played on traditional instruments like the banjo. Seeger devoted his life to this kind of music, which was not performed in concert halls for the wealthy, but in the mining towns, tenant farms, and other places where working people gathered to dance and entertain themselves.It was at the age of 17, when Seeger devoted his life to folk music, that he also joined the Young Communist League. In 1936, the Communist Party and its allied organizations were large and influential. In the 1930s, the CP made a big effort to work with artists, intellectuals, and entertainers as part of the strategy of building a “People’s Front Against Fascism.” Many popular musicians, such as Paul Robeson, Woody Guthrie, Aaron Copeland, and Huddie Ledbetter were close to the CP during this time.The CP distinguished itself from other left-wing political organizations of the period by its staunch opposition to racism and Jim Crow segregation. Seeger made an effort to promote African-American music as well as other songs of the working class, including “Goodnight Irene,” written by blues musician  Ledbetter, and “We Shall Overcome,” an anthem of the Civil Rights Movement. Seeger and other leftists, including CP members, created “People’s Songs,” an organization that recorded and promoted music associated with progressive struggles.No surrender to McCarthyismAfter the Second World War, there was a rise of right-wing anti-communism in the United States, commonly called “McCarthyism.” The CP was forced to function as an underground organization, with many of its leaders jailed. Despite the hostile political climate, Seeger did not distance himself from the Communist movement, or cease his radical activism.In 1948, Seeger performed music while touring with the presidential campaign of Henry Wallace, who broke with the Democrats to form the “Progressive Party.” Wallace’s 1948 campaign focused on opposing segregation, defending the rights of labor unions, and promoting friendship between the United States and the Soviet Union. Millions of people voted for Wallace because he opposed racism and militarism.In 1949, a lynch mob was assembled to attack a concert in Peekskill, N.Y. Singing “We Shall Overcome,” activists mobilized by the CP blocked the right-wing crowd from entering the concert and lynching famed musician and activist Paul Robeson. As the concert ended, the police forced Seeger, his spouse, Toshi Seeger, and his infant child to drive through the right-wing crowd. Members of the Ku Klux Klan and the American Legion pelted the car with bricks and rocks, shattering the windows.In 1955, Seeger was called before the House Un-American Activities Committee. He was asked to testify about his membership in the CP, and to name other artists and musicians who worked with it. He refused, and as a result was convicted of “contempt of Congress.” He was sentenced to serve a year in prison, though his conviction was eventually overturned by an appeals court.Because Seeger was unapologetic about his association with the CP, and his support of anti-racist and anti-imperialist struggles, he was banned from appearing on TV or radio, despite being one of the most popular folk musicians in the country.As a result, songs written by Seeger such as “If I Had A Hammer,” and “Turn, Turn, Turn” were made popular by other folk performers like Peter, Paul, and Mary, and the Kingston Trio.Opposing war, honored by CubaWhile Seeger was banned from TV and radio, he continued to perform at anti-war and Civil Rights rallies, despite being constantly harassed by the FBI.  He composed and performed a song at anti-war rallies called, “Bring ‘em Home,” in which he justified the actions of the National Liberation Front of Vietnam, proclaiming:There is one thing I must confessI am not really a pacifistIf any army invaded this land of mineI’d be out on the firing lineEven if they brought their planes to bombAnd helicopters and napalmAfter years of being banned from the airwaves, Seeger returned to national TV in 1968, when he appeared on the Smothers Brothers Comedy Hour, performing a song criticizing the Vietnam war called “Waist Deep in the Big Muddy.”Seeger was a supporter of the movement against nuclear proliferation in the 1970s and 1980s. He also was also a known environmentalist, sponsoring concerts against pollution.It is unclear exactly when Pete Seeger resigned from the CP.  Later in life he became much less supportive of countries around the world building socialism.  However, he was outspoken in his support for the Cuban Five.  In 1999, the Cuban government awarded Seeger “the Order of Felix Vera,” in honor of his “humanistic and artistic work in defense of the environment and against racism.”Seeger never distanced himself from communism as an idea. When asked about the communist anthem “The Internationale,” he declared “if there’s a world here 100 years from now, this song will be part of that world,” reported the Los Angeles Times on Jan. 28.In October of 2011, at 92,  Seeger marched all the way from Zuccotti Park to Columbus Circle in New York City with Occupy Wall Street activists. His death on Jan. 27, at the age of 94, was mourned across the world by progressive, anti-racist, and anti-capitalist organizers.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Parliament releases report about journalists spied on by state intelligence and those who spied for it

first_img News Follow the news on Germany Use the Digital Services Act to make democracy prevail over platform interests, RSF tells EU RSF_en Receive email alerts News The Federal Intelligence Service has spied at least six journalists since the early 1990s and has recruited others to provide information about their colleagues. Reporters Without Borders calls for a full investigation and the publication of everything known about these illegal activities. GermanyEurope – Central Asia News RSF asks Germany to let Myanmar journalist Mratt Kyaw Thu apply for asylum May 31, 2021 Find out more May 29, 2006 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Parliament releases report about journalists spied on by state intelligence and those who spied for it June 2, 2021 Find out more Help by sharing this information GermanyEurope – Central Asia The German parliament (the Bundestag) has posted on its website (www.bundestag.de/aktuell/pkg/index.html) part of a report by a former judge revealing that the country’s external intelligence service, the BND, have been spying on journalists. Some passages were censored and names replaced by initials at the request of the journalists. The report was posted on 26 May.BND chief Ernst Uhrlau publicly apologised for spying on the media over several years and also for paying some journalists to spy on their colleagues. The government has said it will soon appoint a special investigator into civil servants’ involvement in the scandal, and that disciplinary measures will be taken, though it rejected the need for a public trial.Reporters Without Borders had called on 16 May for an enquiry to identify who ordered and carried out these illegal practices, in the hope they would not be repeated. ——16 May 2006Call for full investigation into spying on journalists and for release of secret reportReporters Without Borders today urged the German authorities to carry out a full investigation into the spying on investigative journalists that was reportedly carried out by the Federal Intelligence Service (BND) from the early 1990s until last autumn. A parliamentary committee is due to question the BND this afternoon about its extensive clandestine monitoring of the press in which journalists were paid to inform on colleagues, according details from a confidential report by former senior federal judge Gerhard Schäfer that were published by the Süddeutsche Zeitung daily on 12 May. “The authorities must shed light on all aspects of these serious press freedom violations by a democratic government’s intelligence services,” Reporters Without Borders said. “An investigation must be carried out to clearly establish who was responsible and which journalists collaborated, and the report that already exists must be made public.”The Schäfer report mentions the cases of six journalists who agreed to provide information on their colleagues or were forced to do so during interrogation. The BND, which is supposed to be a foreign intelligence service, began its spying in an attempt to identify the sources of leaks from within the service.“Press freedom is guaranteed by article 5 of the German constitution and cannot be curtailed for the security reasons cited by the BND,” the organisation said. “The protection of sources is the cornerstone of investigative journalism and is an absolute right. If it is not respected, the media cannot perform their role of providing information and contributing to democracy.”Reporters Without Borders continued: “It is a fundamental violation of professional ethics for journalists to work for intelligence agencies. Journalists who provide confidential information about their colleagues damage the credibility of the entire profession. They are also violating section 6.2 of the German press code of conduct.”The Schäfer report mentions the cases of a journalist formerly working for the magazine Stern and now employed by the Süddeutsche Zeitung, who was watched from January to February 1996; a reporter for the Südwest Presse daily who was monitored; Erich Schmidt-Eenboom, a journalist based in Weilheim who wrote a 1993 book about internal conflicts resulting from the appointment of a new person to head the BND; and a reporter with the magazine Spiegel whose phone was tapped.Reporters Without Borders said: “We welcome yesterday’s statement by a spokesman for the chancellor that orders have been issued for the spying on journalists to stop and for journalists not to be used as informants. But the government still has not made clear who was responsible for these illegal practices or explained what measures will be put in place to prevent their repetition.”The Schäfer report says the complete list of journalists who were spied on is not known. A journalist working for the weekly Focus, who was code-named “Dali” and “silent one,” reportedly received 600,000 marks (306,000 euros) for his services to the BND from 1982 to 1998.Freelance journalist Erwin Decker, a former war correspondent in Iraq for the Tagesspiegel, Handelsblatt and Bild dailies, has confessed to providing information on one of his colleagues, Josef Hufelschulte, who worked for Focus and who was spied on for several years. to go further Organisation News German BND Act: A missed opportunity for press freedom March 30, 2021 Find out morelast_img read more

Estate Planning: What You Need to Know to Get Started

Community News Make a comment EVENTS & ENTERTAINMENT | FOOD & DRINK | THE ARTS | REAL ESTATE | HOME & GARDEN | WELLNESS | SOCIAL SCENE | GETAWAYS | PARENTS & KIDS Name (required)  Mail (required) (not be published)  Website  In my first article, “Estate Plans: Do I Need One?,” we followed Tom and how his estate plan helped him and his loved ones through a series of life-altering events. We noted that an estate plan helps take away the uncertainty of what happens next, both during life and death, and helps resolve the top questions most people worry about when they think “What if something were to happen to me?”Now it’s time to move forward with getting your estate plan, but where do you start? First let’s start with deciding who will prepare an estate plan for you. There are many options to create an estate plan, including the use of estate planning software or document preparation services. Many of those options look appealing because they can be prepared for a low cost. I will tell you that, as an estate planning attorney who has reviewed these documents, you are going to get what you pay for.The reason those options cost less is because you are getting a “one size fits all” type of plan. I spend about as much time redrafting documents for clients who used these options first as I do drafting my own. Or worse, I have to go to court to fix something in a plan that I am no longer free to change without a Judge’s approval. It’s hard to tell a client who paid $100 for a Trust that it will now cost over $2,500.00 in attorney fees and court costs to fix a drafting mistake. Worse yet, sometimes those mistakes cannot be corrected. With that being said, the first and most important step in getting started on an estate plan is to find an estate planning attorney. The estate planner can develop a plan that is right for your situation and will be able to modify that plan as you experience life events that may cause that plan to change.Once you find an estate planning attorney, the second part of the process is gathering information about your “estate.” The estate planner wants a picture of what you have, what it is worth, and how it is held. Collect and organize documents related to assets, liabilities, insurance, bank accounts and retirement plans. Identify all of your liabilities or debt owed. This information is necessary to advise you on matters related to income and estate taxes as well as how title to these assets may be changed with respect to the plan that is created for you.Next, you will want to consider the person(s) you would want to play a part in your planning. Who will manage your assets when you are unable to do so for yourself or after you pass away? Who will make medical decisions for you in the event you are unable to make them for yourself? Often, clients name adult children to serve in these capacities, but selecting a child is not always the most appropriate choice. For example, serving as the Trustee of a Trust or Executor of a Will is often time and labor intensive; most people who have served as an Executor or Trustee will tell you it’s akin to having a second job. Think carefully about why you are selecting the individual to fulfill this role and how your selection may affect others who may play a part in your planning. Will this person have the time to serve in this role? Can this person be relied on to be proactive in the management of your personal and financial affairs? Will the selection of this person create conflict between siblings or relatives? Be prepared to discuss your choices with your estate planner and the reasoning behind your selection.Finally, take an active role in the creation of your estate plan. I often have clients who come in for changes to an estate plan who tell me they never really understood what the documents said when they signed them. The benefits to creating and maintaining an estate plan is it ensures that YOUR estate will be distributed according to YOUR wishes, so be sure to tell your planner what matters to you, ask lots of questions and raise concerns.

Pasadena Response Rate High As Census Draws to a Close

Required fields are marked * Subscribe CITY NEWS SERVICE/STAFF REPORT Pasadena Will Allow Vaccinated People to Go Without Masks in Most Settings Starting on Tuesday Make a comment Thursday, Oct. 15, is the last day to fill out a census form.The Supreme Court on Tuesday ruled that the Trump administration could end counting for the 2020 Census early, suspending a lower court order that extended the count’s schedule.Locally, the city’s self-count response rate finished at 70.7 percent, according to City Clerk Mark Jomsky.Census workers were able to successfully follow up with 99.8 percent of the remaining households that did not complete the survey by self-response, according to the census website.The successful follow-up by census workers on the ground could put the city’s final overall response rate above 90 percent.“Between the self-response and the non-response follow-up, it looks like they did a pretty good job in Pasadena,” said Jomsky.The city held several events over the past several months as part of a campaign to convince local residents to take part in the census.Part of that campaign was aimed at convincing hard-to-count households that it was safe to take the census. The Trump administration fought to place a question on the survey about citizenship.Mayor Terry Tornek said he thought the city did very well.“We expected that it was going to end at the end of September,” Tornek said. “And so the October extension that we got from the court was sort of a bonus. We’ve been working very intensively for a lot of months. We were trying to use every minute available to us.”There were some worrisome moments along the way.Just two months ago, the self-response rate was at 65 percent. Although that number was above the county’s self-response rate, it still worried local officials that a devastating undercount could occur.Population counts from the 2020 census will not only be used to determine how many congressional seats and Electoral College votes each state gets for the next decade, but also will be used to decide the distribution of nearly $900 billion in federal funding for such things as schools, road construction and repair, and many other public services and projects.“This is a tough time to seek information from people,” said Councilman Victor Gordo, who is challenging Tornek for the mayor’s seat in the Nov. 3 election. “But it is an important goal to ensure that everyone is counted for economic reasons, for population reasons, for representation and political reasons. The census very much is part of our democratic process. “It determines how many representatives we have in our community.”Local activists and city leaders began expressing concerns last year after the Trump administration announced plans to include the question, “Is this person a citizen of the United States?”Some believe that even if the question was not used to deport immigrants, the fear of potential exposure caused by the question would have a devastating impact by causing a sizable undercount.That, in turn, could have reduced federal allocations by billions of dollars for countless programs around the country, cost states in the number of seats they can hold in the House of Representatives, and determine how many Electoral College votes each state gets.Locally, the census is used to sometimes redraw local City Council and Pasadena Unified School District boundaries to guarantee the city is complying with federal voting rights laws.In the early 1990s, local district lines were redrawn to create a district which increased voting opportunities for primarily Latino residents living in an enclave which later became District 5, the area Gordo currently represents, after the 1990 Census revealed the area was 27 percent Latino.The Supreme Court eventually shot down Trump’s efforts to include the question on the census.
