The master's map

will never take us

beyond the master's boundaries.

In May I'll have an opportunity to present the petition/proposal to improve the U.S. Census Bureau's approach to collecting race data to a group of Bureau representatives. The more support I can point to for the modest but crucial change we're promoting, the more likely it is to get some traction. 

If you haven't had the chance to add your name or share the petition with others who might add their names, please consider being part of this effort.

                      Link to the petition.
