Sen. Harris Introduces Bill to Add LGBTI Questions to Census

08/01/2018 | Daily Democrat

As the typically dry process of setting questions for the Census moves further into the political arena, Sen. Kamala Harris is pushing to make sure everyone is counted — by adding a new set of questions on sexual orientation and gender identity. Harris introduced a bill in the Senate on Tuesday that for the first time would require the federal government to ask the questions on the 2030 Census. The answers would help paint the most detailed picture of LGBTI America to date, providing a wealth of data that advocates say would help combat discrimination and put a spotlight on the challenges the community still faces.
