At PHP, we believe a citizenship question would discourage census participation by foreign-born residents, with serious consequences for allocation of federal resources and political representation of our communities.

On August 2, 2018, Philadelphia Health Partnership and more than 300 grantmaking organizations from around the United States sent a letter to the Commerce Department opposing the addition of a citizenship question to the 2020 Census.
