When: May 30th 2:00 PM EST
A fair and accurate count for the 2020 Census is critical for political representation and for the allocation of $700 billion in federal funds. Low-income communities are especially at risk of undercounting. The operations for the Census are already in high-gear: Key decisions are being made, heads of local offices are being hired, field staff are being sourced, and outreach campaigns are being designed. In this SSIR Live! webinar , we will explore opportunities and avenues available for nonprofits, funders, and local governments to ensure your local community gets counted. Register today!
