The 2020 Census will likely be the most difficult census in recent history, and there could not be more at stake. With the 2020 Census less than two years away, California is at serious risk of an under-count and losing billions of dollars in Medicaid, SNAP, and Medicare resources as well as a congressional seat. However, with the addition of the citizenship question and the climate of fear cultivated by the federal administration, ensuring a complete and accurate count, particularly among the state’s immigrant communities and communities of color, will be more difficult than ever. Tackling a challenge of this magnitude will require the resolve and collaboration of the government, nonprofit organizations, and philanthropy to ensure that we all count.
Join us for a discussion of what’s at stake for California and all of our communities, the unprecedented challenges facing the 2020 Census, and the importance of cross-sector collaboration to ensure a complete and accurate census. Our panel of experts will share their strategies and ongoing efforts to make certain that every Californian is counted.
