What’s In Store for Census 2020?
We know 2020 will be a pivotal year. Rolling out of the 2020 Census, though it might not sound too exciting, will be a key moment in 2020. Participating in the Census is our right and civic duty.
Join the Wagner Policy Alliance in a panel discussion with individuals from varying sectors answering questions around the upcoming Census. Come learn how you can play a role, and why being counted matters to the future of our communities and voices in Congress. Speakers will explore answers to questions around, why we should care about the Census; what are key changes to the 2020 Census; who is traditionally undercounted; and what are messaging strategies organizations have taken and maybe should be taking to spread the word about completing the 2020 Census.
