What You Need to Know for the 2020 Census:
Organizing for a Complete Count
Now is the time to begin preparing for the 2020 Census! The Census determines how Congressional and state legislative districts are drawn. It guides the distribution of federal and state money to local communities. And, of course, it gives us the data that we all rely on to make important policy decisions.
This workshop will give you everything you need to promote the Census in your community. In this joint session with Minnesota cities and counties, learn the best strategies for reaching hard-to-count residents. Walk away with best practices, data tools, and a concrete plan for promoting a complete and accurate 2020 Census. There will also be opportunities to share ideas and coordinate your efforts with neighboring communities.
