Census Bureau Seeks Arab-Americans Partnership

The Arab American News, Posted: Jul 28, 2009

DEARBORN, Mich.The U.S. Census Bureau is seeking partnerships in Arab American communities for the 2010 Census, reports The Arab American News.

According to the news report, an Arab American Institute (AAI) news release said the bureau is seeking over 100,000 partnerships with organizations, religious institutions, businesses and schools in preparation for the undertaking.

Helen Samhan, Executive Director of The Arab American Institute Foundation said, "It is definitely a positive action for organizations in the Arab American community to become active in the 2010 Census. It is an opportunity to promote civic leadership within the community and introduces organizations and their members to the local political decision-makers.

The news report also mentions that some Arab Americans have criticized the Census because it asks about race, listing a number of races and ethnicities to choose from, but excludes Arab as a choice.
