Census 2020: Planning Your Get Out the Count Work


Meeting Description:
You know what's at stake for Census 2020: the community you serve is at risk of being undercounted and losing federal funding for public housing, Head Start, Medicaid and Medicare, and more. You know that there is funding available to get involved in Census work. But to apply for funding and ensure a fair and accurate count you need a plan - and that's where this webinar comes in.
 
Anita Banerji, director of the Democracy Initiative at Forefront, will walk us through the types of activities nonprofits can participate in and how to plan for Census 2020 work. Whether you want to be involved in educating your community about the Census and it's impacts, advocate for culturally competent practices as part of a complete count committee, or engage directly with the people you serve around filling out the census questionnaire (mostly digital in 2020!!), this webinar will help you develop a strong plan that you can use to raise money to support this critical work.
