Ross Mirkarimi Urges Iranian Americans to Participate in the 2010 Census


January 15, 2010, Washington, DC- San Francisco City Supervisor Ross Mirkarimi speaks about the importance of the 2010 Census and urges Iranian Americans to participate and be counted. “Many categories of populations are counted, but there are many more categories that do not exist… For example, the Iranian American community. We are telling people to put in the ‘Other’ column: ‘We are Iranian, and we want to be counted…we are not just simply put into the general category of Caucasian”. Mirkarimi has recently introduced legislation mandating that census workers be admitted into notoriously hard-to-access Single Room Occupancy hotels so residents can more easily be counted in the 2010 census.
