2020 Census: The Importance of Counting Everyone in our Communities

In partnership with Senator Henry Stern’s office, Toolbox LA is hosting a community activation event on Sunday, August 5 at 10:00 AM regarding the 2020 Census and the importance of counting everyone in our communities. Join us to learn more about the proposed citizenship question and how it will effect outreach and participation.

From The Atlantic:

“The census is vital to the country’s functioning. It’s not just a count of all households or a measure of American characteristics. It’s also an augur of political, economic, and cultural forces—a predictor and an allocator of power. In times of social upheaval—between political parties, whites and nonwhites, urban and rural areas, economic elites and the working class—the census can function almost like an umpire. And today, when each of these intertwined conflicts is escalating, the incentive and ambition for working the ref are greater than they’ve ever been.”

Speakers:
