- CONVERSATION TOPIC
The last time the federal standards on race and ethnicity were revised was over two decades ago. If we depart from the premise that the purpose of race and ethnicity, and other policy-relevant data collection is not simply about complying with bureaucratic mandates, but rather it is about establishing communities of practice that work in concert toward the creation of pathways (from harmonized and contextualized data collection, analysis and reporting) to effective policy solutions and interventions that address the pressing needs of impacted communities across the country, how can we think outside the box? How should we measure race, ethnicity for generations to come?
Bring your ideas, questions and comments to share as we create greater understanding of what’s at stake and the opportunity to have your voice heard by the last day to submit comments to the federal registry, 4/12/23, info pasted below. Initial proposals of the federal working group include:
- Collect race and ethnicity using one combined question
- Add “Middle Eastern or NorthAfrican” (MENA) as a new minimum category
- Require the collection of detailed race and ethnicity by default
Other changes include removing the term: ”Who maintain tribal affiliation orcommunity attachment” in the American Indian or Alaska Native definition
Feedback is requested on how to collect data on enslaved people originally from the African continent (e.g., American Descendants of slavery or American freedmen” or something else?
