    Census 2020: We All Count - How Nonprofits Can Help Ensure an Accurate Census 2020

    Do you know what’s at stake in the 2020 Census?

    Every 10 years, the U.S. Census Bureau conducts a population count of everyone living in the United States through the Census. The 2020 Census is a short questionnaire that asks basic information, like the age, race/ethnicity, and sex of everyone in your household. Census data is used to determine how $1.5 trillion dollars of government funding is spent on local communities every year for education, housing, healthcare and more. It is also the basis of how many U.S. Representative each State gets in Congress. Governments, businesses, schools, and nonprofits use this data to measure the need for services to help individuals and families in need. If there is an undercount in Santa Clara County, we might lose out on federal funding for those who need it most.

    As Americans we pride ourselves on how far we’ve come from slavery, lynching, and legal segregation. We measure ourselves by incremental change, instead of long-term progress, and how far we have to go. Fifty years after meaningful efforts toward civil rights, the U.S. remains overwhelmingly unjust. Our current solutions to make the world more equitable and just—from desegregation to diversity and representation—are not enough.
    Please note that this talk will be hosted live online. Instructions on how to join the conversation will be included in your event confirmation email. If you need additional assistance finding or joining the event, please email publicprograms@ciis.edu.
