Sensemaking with Horizons: Dr. Jeanine Abrams McLean, President of Fair Count

As a part of Horizons’ Sensemaking Series on Race & Democracy, we invited the President of Fair Count, Dr. Jeanine Abrams McLean, to discuss their work as a non-partisan, non-profit organization “dedicated to partnering with Historically Undercounted Populations (HUP) communities to achieve a fair and accurate count of all people in Georgia and the nation in the 2030 Census, and to strengthening the pathways to greater civic participation.” Horizons’ Director for Race & Democracy, Jarvis Williams, probes with Jeanine the question of defining this kind of work as “pro-democracy” and/or “racial justice” in service of building partnerships, securing funding and ultimately responding to the communities most in need of having their voices listened to and their votes count.
