The Census: Getting a Full Count
Learn How You can assure a Full Count in 2020
Sept 14, 2019
LWV VA Workshop
We all know the value and the need for a full count for the 2020 Census. Data from the Census is vital in determining the apportionment of seats allocated to the states for the House of Representatives. In addition, governmental entities use it for redistricting both congressional and state legislative districts, school districts, and voting precincts. It is also a huge determining factor in how more than $675 billionis is distributed from the Federal Government to the States.
The League can plan a valuable role in making sure everyone is counted in 2020. Learn how your local League can assist by attending the 10:00 AM session at the LWV VA Fall Workshop. Our speaker will be Ronald Brown of the US Census Bureau.
Among other things, we will learn about Complete Count Committees, outreach to immigrant communities and how to work on focused neighbor-to-neighbor outreach.
Be sure to register, as this is just one aspect of an exciting learning program that is the Fall LWV Virginia Workshop.
