The history of the U.S. census is riddled with examples of efforts to exclude immigrants and minorities. Arturo Vargas, president and CEO of the NALEO Educational Fund discusses that history, and the ongoing fight to make sure everyone living in the country is counted fairly and accurately. Vargas focuses much of his talk on the controversial proposal to require undocumented immigrants to identify themselves, which he calls a scare tactic aimed at decreasing representation in Washington. He details other challenges ahead, and what must be done to overcome them.

Quality data is paramount to ensuring equal representation. If we don't know who is living in our communities, we can't create and maintain the systems needed to care for and support those people. In this panel discussion, experts on data collection, Chicano studies and urban planning discuss the challenges of getting good data, and how to turn data into action. This panel was part of a day long symposium celebrating the life and legacy of Leo Estrada, who spent 40-years at the Luskin School of Public Affairs at UCLA.

This panel discussion features former elected officials, legal and political experts discussing the role of late UCLA professor Leo Estrada in redistricting in California. They say Estrada's work was integral ensuring people of color achieved equal representation in the legislature. Not only was his expertise and data collection essential in understanding the makeup of California communities, but it also proved invaluable in recruiting the best candidates to represent those communities.

Higher education has long lacked diversity. This panel of academics, who crossed path with late UCLA professor Leo Estrada at various points in their lives, discusses the lessons learned from his unique form of mentorship. They explain how making it in academia can be especially difficult for people from underrepresented communities, and how Estradas methods could be used to help get more students from those communities through higher education.

As an increasingly polarized America fights over the legacy of racism, Susan Neiman, author of the contemporary philosophical classic Evil in Modern Thought, asks what we can learn from the Germans about confronting the evils of the past. In the wake of white nationalist attacks, the ongoing debate over reparations, and the controversy surrounding Confederate monuments and the contested memories they evoke, Susan Neiman's Learning from the Germans delivers an urgently needed perspective on how a country can come to terms with its historical wrongdoings. She combines philosophical reflection, personal stories, and interviews with both Americans and Germans who are grappling with the evils of their own national histories.
