2020 Vision: What You Need to Know About the Census

Meeting Description:
The 2020 Census is a critical piece of our democracy, but counting everyone who lives in the United States is a colossal task. Getting an accurate number has major implications for our state - it determines the allocation of federal funds and of seats in the House of Representatives (North Carolina is poised for an additional seat). These factors make it critical to the work of philanthropy.
Join Dr. Rebecca Tippet from Carolina Demography, Stacey Carless from N.C. Counts and Clare Richie from the Community Foundation of Greater Atlanta to learn why the Census is so critical and how you can help North Carolina capture accurate data and represent our most vulnerable populations.
This is a free webinar and is open for staff and board members of NCNG member foundations.
Date: Tue, Aug 7, 2018
Time: 10:00 AM EDT
Duration: 1 hour 15 minutes
Host(s): Ret Boney
